If you are planning to take a car to Spain this year?, don’t leave home without knowing some of the important driving regulations.
- You are required to carry two warning triangles. In the event of a breakdown, they should be placed in front of and behind the car.
If a driver wears glasses, they must keep a spare pair in the car.
- As with much of Europe, the drink drive limit is lower in Spain than in Ireland. Bear this in mind and if you’re going to drive, just don’t drink.
- Parking in many towns is controlled by blue zones (zonas azul) where a disc must be displayed.
- Don’t park on main roads with continuous white lines along the edge.
- Children can sit in the front seat but must be at least 12 years old unless using a child restraint.
