In these times we spend more time paying than collecting. Knowing that, the least we need is that the radar on duty take a photo of us and a letter will come to us, weeks later, indicating the amount of our fine, both in monetary terms and in terms of points.
Since 2015, the DGT changed its radar management method. Do you think that the radar only jumps when we exceed 10% of the speed of the road? If so, you are wrong: since last year we will only be able to exceed 7% of the stipulated speed. It is what the General Directorate of Traffic calls "Tolerance 7".
If you want to avoid the DGT radars, don't even think about exceeding 131 km / h
Something common is to circulate at about 135 km / h on roads that have the limit at 120 km / h. It is common: we calculate 10% (132 km / h) and we give ourselves a small tip. But the 10% limit is a thing of the past, since since last year We can only exceed 7% of the speed stipulated by the DGT.
Nevertheless, this percentage will not be applied in its entirety: for speeds below 100 km / h, the General Directorate of Traffic will not apply it, since, paraphrasing the DGT itself, it would be almost impossible to perceive that percentage if we are driving, for example, at 40 km / h (radar at 42, 8 km / h). Thus, they give higher margins up to 100 km / h (+9 km / h). In the limits of 110 km / h and 120 km / h they will be applied, although they will give us an extra two kilometers of speed: 120 and 131 km / h respectively.
These limits will be generic for the entire Spanish territory, except for the Autonomous Communities of Catalonia, the Basque Country and Navarra, since they have transferred the powers in this matter. Thus, in the rest of Spain we will be guided by the following table:
