“What are the rules regarding overtaking a slow moving vehicle such as a mechanical digger or agricultural tractor on a road like the N332 where normal overtaking is not permitted?”

Overtaking Tractors 1The Traffic Law says that when there is a solid line, you may overtake the following vehicles so long as their speed is low and you can overtake them in a safe way – Bicycles, mopeds, pedestrians, animals, and animals towing trailers.

There is no reference to agricultural tractors or mechanical diggers in the law, so in these cases you will have to wait behind them, although the drivers of these vehicles know that they have to pull over their vehicle when there is a traffic jam caused by their vehicle.Overtaking Tractors 2


Reglamento General de Circulación

    Could you help me please, as I am confused about the motorway speed limits.
    I understood that for cars the limit increased last year to 130kph, and whilst I personally tend to set my cruise control at 116 kph it does seem that I am then the slowest car on the road!
    The n332 web site still shows 120 kph as the maxium speed limit for cars, (and also points out the speeds above which drivers would incur speeding fines).
    Is the official maximum speed limit permitted for cars on Spanish Motorways still 120 kph or is it now 130 kph?
    Thank you.
