Motorists are reminded that from next Tuesday, 11 May, the maximum speed limit in towns will be reduced to 30 km/h on most streets.
According to the new regulations from the DGT (Directorate-General for Traffic), this new limit must be respected on urban roads which have one lane in each direction (which are the majority). The speed limit will be reduced to 20 km/h on semi-pedestrianised streets (where there is no difference in level between the road and the pavement). The current 50 km/h speed limit will remain the same on urban roads which have two or more lanes in each direction, apart from a few exceptions.
In the case of Malaga city, it has been estimated that seven out of ten streets will now have a 30km/h limit.
