You're welcome, apparently the police won't accept ignorance of the new laws as mitigating circumstances!

Thank you CJ. Have copied to my Olvera forum on Facebook. Some of the members are residents others like myself spend a number of weeks there each year. I don't think any of us want to fall foul of any new driving regulations.

Saludos. Lindsay

Wow...They are hefty rules. I wonder if they'll rigorously enforce them?

Apparently they are going to enforce them and say ignorance of the rules is not an excuse for people who get caught.

Here's a link to a blog written by a Tenerife resident, but it applies to the driving rules throughout Spain. She has listed some more tips on driving in Spain.
