I can tell you pal it is 90.When we were out the other day we saw them changing the signs.The only place I know 80 is down on the coast on the carretera and so it should be.When we came here all them years ago it used to be like Whacky Races although not everybody sticks to the speed limit now but with all the unmarked Guardia cars you just never know who is behind you.Better the momey in my pocket than in theirs.

Hey Marco,if you read my post you will see I appologised for being slightly off topic. but thought people should know about the speed limit in Spain being changed as I hadn't seen anyone else mention it as some people wouldn't know and could easily get caught out.Oh deary me I will have to stick to topic next time.

Apart from your aggressive tone, what you may have around your way is not a national phenomenon. We had occasion to go this morning from Jaén province down to Granada on the N432, the main Córdoba - Granada carretera. On the stretches with a good road surface and not many bends the max was 100kph on the parts that are not so good the max was or 80kph or 70 kph.

I'm afraid it is Baldi.

The DGT as started to implement the reduction across the whole country, just because they haven't got to your neck of the woods yet, doesn't mean that your secondary roads' limits will be maintained at 100 kmh. It is max 90 for all of us from now on.
