The DGT has come up with some fun fines, such as abandoning a shopping trolley in a supermarket car park, for instance.
Yes, the Directorate General of Traffico has also taken to putting cameras on some traffic lights to knab those that jump red lights, and did you know that you can be fined for driving when you are ill?
So, for those that can’t be bothered to return their shopping trolley to where they are kept, you could get yourself an 80-euro fine, if there is a Guardia Civil officer about. Yes, you could be bringing home more than just your shopping!
Although a supermarket car park is private property, if you commit any driving offence in it and it is picked up by the Guardia Civil, you could face a fine just the same as if you had done it out on the open roads.
Take for instance, driving the wrong way down a lane between parking spaces or parking in a space reserved for handicapped drivers, too.
