The Interior Minister, Jorge Fernández Díaz, recently announced “imminent” changes to the national traffic regulations, which will almost certainly see the speed limit on secondary roads being reduced from 100kmph to 90kmph.

Apparantly the decision comes in response to the fact that “77% of road accidents, including fatal accidents, occur on the country’s secondary roads”.

Furthermore, on stretches of roads that are 6.5 metres wide or less, the speed limit will be reduced to 60kmph. With regard to the motorway network, the minister confirmed that he was studying the possibility of increasing the maximum speed limit from 120kmph to 130kmph.
