Join us for this week’s MarbellaNOW #89 to ensure you’re up to date on traffic regulations and avoid those fines!
Although we were warned at the beginning of the summer that we would be faced with fierce police controls during the summer months, the truth of the matter is that, as per long existing regulations, the Spanish police are entitled to 2 of their 4 week annual holiday time during the month of August.
July had it’s controls as promised but if you think back did you see any controls this past month? Personally, none, but watch out, they’re back in force!
Be prepared to have and present your car documentation, insurance papers and some form of photographic identification, have cash on hand to pay any infractions if you’re a tourist, and also be prepared for the unmarked police cars on patrol, you’ll be quite shocked to know how many there are!
This spot is sponsored by Linea Directa – car insurance that has policies exclusively for us expats in Malaga area, which includes paying for a taxi to take us home if we’re not fit to drive, up to 4 times a month. Call 952 14 78 34 for more information or visit the web – I’ve just changed to this company and get full coverage, with this taxi home option, for the price of the third party policy I had before! A big difference that could also be interesting to you – call 952 14 78 34 for full details, and no worries, everything is in English, even the paperwork, so it’s easy plus you get a top national company that has all the back up facilities of tow trucks, garages, hotels etc., in case you ever actually need to use your insurance!
