Driving in Spain - Europe
DRIVING HINTS AND TIPS ACCIDENTS
Road users involved in an accident in Spain should adequately mark the presence of their vehicle on the road, try to move it to the hard shoulder or lay-by, then take the necessary steps in order to ensure that the vehicle is retrieved in the shortest possible time by the Spanish rescue services. The correct way of placing a warning triangle 50 metres in front of the car and another 50 metres behind, so that they are visible to approaching drivers from at least 100 metres. On dual carriageways or roads with more than three lanes, only one warning triangle is required, at the rear of the car. Those witnessing an accident are obliged to tend to the victims and seek the attendance of the emergency service. The police need only be contacted if the accident has resulted in serious casualties. SOS telephone posts are normally available on motorways only in Spain, in all other roads presence of traffic police is high. In any case, the assistance of other drivers may also be sought. In the event of an accident, should the need for counselling arise, drivers are advised to contact their consulate in the area.
BREAKDOWNS The towing of an accidented or broken down vehicle may only be carried out by a breakdown vehicle in Spain. Exceptionally, towing of the vehicle by another car may be allowed only to move it to the nearest safe place for the traffic, provided that safety in the operation is guaranteed. Again, expediency in obtaining the assistance of the breakdown services is necessary and this should be done by means of the SOS roadside telephones, the traffic police or other drivers.
CREDIT CARDS Although credit cards are accepted at service stations, foreign visitors to Spain are advised to be prepared to pay cash, in Euros, for petrol. The same applies to payment of motorway tolls.
DOCUMENTATION AND INSURANCE At all times when driving in Spain, it is compulsory to carry the driving licence, the log book of the vehicle and third party insurance. Travellers are advised to obtain a Green Card from their own insurance company.
EQUIPMENT. It is required that drivers carry two warning triangles, spare bulbs and fuses and spare wheel. Drivers requiring glasses, need to carry a spare pair at all times when driving. As for fuel, whilst it is against the law to carry spare fuel, drivers would be made responsible, and fined accordingly, should their cars be immobilized on the road for shortage of petrol.
FINES Because of the high incidence of road accidents in Spain, fines for traffic offenses are strictly enforced. Non resident offenders are issued on the spot fines. Fines paid on the spot qualify for a 20% discount. Complaints regarding traffic fines should be referred to the provincial traffic office where the fine was issued, as shown in the ticket.
HIGHWAY CODE The Spanish Highway Code complies with EU regulations. This Office has no knowledge of the availability of the same in this country. Neither do we have any records of the possible existence of an English version. Further details on the Spanish Highway Code may be sought from the Dirección General de Tráfico at the address shown below.
LIGHTING Sidelights have to be used between sunset and sunrise, as well as in tunnels. Headlights should be used outside built up areas, where there is no street lighting and at all times in tunnels insufficiently lit (this is signposted). Dipped headlights, as well as sidelights, should be used at night in built-up areas or well lit roads and tunnels. Headlights should be dipped whenever necessary in order to avoid blinding other drivers. During day time, dipped head lights -except in the case of motorcycles that should have them on throughout the day- are to be used only when driving on a reversible lane or on a lane exceptionally allocated to traffic in the opposite direction to its normal use. In case of poor visibility, use your head lights (dipped or not) or the front fog lamps, or both combined. Rear fog lamps may only be used when visibility is seriously restricted.
PETROL Petrol prices on the whole are cheaper than those operating in the U.K. Lead free petrol is widely available throughout Spain.The types of petrol normally available are Super (****), Normal (***), Sin plomo (lead free) and Gasoleo (Diesel). LPG Gas is only dispensed for vehicles offering a public service both national or international. There are no petrol concessions for tourists.

You must inform your car insurance company that you are taking your car abroad. They will in turn issue you with a Green Card. Some insurance companies charge a small fee for this. The card must be taken with you, along with a valid car insurance certificate, your driving licence and original vehicle registration document or log book. If you have a company car or are driving a vehicle that is not registered in your name , you will have to carry a letter from the owner, stating that you are authorised to use the vehicle.
