Keeping to the speed limit is a must on Spanish motorways, but pay special attention on the following road sections, as their speed cameras handed out a huge volume of speeding tickets in Spain in 2019.

In 2019, 50 speed cameras in Spain were responsible for 41 percent of the 2.9 million fines drivers had to pay for speeding.

That’s out of a total of 1,293 speed cameras found across the Spanish territory.

The single most prolific “radar” – as a speed camera is called in Spanish – is located just outside a service station near the city of Sagunto in the Valencia region, more specifically on km 478.1 on the AP-7 motorway.

According to figures from Spain’s Directorate General of Traffic (DGT), it caught 59,428 speeding incidents in 2019, a rise of 1,300 percent compared to 2018 stats.

Some of the other road sections that recorded the highest volume of speeding were km 79.9 of the H-31 in Huelva in the south west of the country (58,266 speeding tickets), km 156.5 of the A-3 near Cuenca in central Spain (57.206 tickets), km 83.2 of the A-92 near Seville (51,915 tickets) and km 13.3 of the A-4 in Madrid (49.693 tickets).

The following map shows where they are located.

The southern region of Andalusia, Spain’s largest in terms of surface area and population, was the autonomous community with the highest number of speeding incidences in 2019 with 23 percent of the total, followed by Madrid (12.7 percent) and the Valencia region (11.4 percent).

Speeding tickets in Spain range from €100 to €600 and a potential loss of anywhere between 2 and 6 points from drivers' licenses depending on how far over the speed limit they were.  

The following list shared by Spanish radio station Cadena Ser using DGT stats shows the 50 speed cameras with the highest record of speeding, with “via” referring to the motorway and “denuncia” to police reports.
