As of January, 2019, the maximum permitted speed on secondary roads of Spain changed, and was reduced.

The idea was to simplify the understanding of the speed limits and, primarily, slow down vehicles on these roads where the most injury and fatal incidents occur.

You can read more about the change in the law by clicking here.

This table is a brief overview of the maximum permitted speeds on the roads of Spain.

If you have already downloaded the Spanish Traffic Law eBook, then this has changed in view of this amendment.

The principle change is ARTICLE 48 – Maximum Permitted Speeds on Roads Out of Town. In the eBook, these are pages 133 to 139.

You can click this link to go to the page where you can download the full eBook, either as a single file, or as different parts. Part 3 is the amended one.

Or, you can download the altered parts directly below, right click and choose SAVE FILE AS, or the equivalent, depending on your browser setting.
