Much appreciated as we will be arriving thursday night. 

We tend to take our time driving so not too worried on the speed camera thing but hope that helle hollis are fair if anything did catch us out.

Aiming to drop in to marbella but stay in cartajima for a couple of nights before heading to jerez

In fairness hire companies the world over are obligated to follow up speeding tickets so a handling charge is reasonable.

If you go anywhere near Ronda,  Setenil de las Bodegas is worth a detour. Have a good trip.

General Discussion Area / Spain holidays- speed cameras
« on: Yesterday at 17:30:33 »
Just a reminder for anyone hiring a car on holiday in Spain.

There are plenty of speed cameras to spoil the fun afforded by those hire cars with their specially  beefed up suspension, engine and brakes.

Here is a list of new camera locations.  https://www.euroweeklynews.com/news/on-euro-weekly-news/spain-news-in-english/1472899-speed-cameras-58-‘miniradars’-installed-across-spain-locations-revealed. The A45 leading out of Malaga to inland (Cordoba/Granada/Antequera has several camera locations in each direction. They issue over 600 tickets a week in each direction. Tom Tom western Europe sat nav is pretty good with their locations.

Most are overhead on the back of gantries. They now also have mobile units which just fit under the ARMCO anywhere.

You can pretend you never got a ticket but the hire car companies can use it as a way of generating revenue as there is so much basic "rent a car" competition. I heard a case the other day of a Brit being detained by the police, leaving Spain, the following year after a holiday. "You can go when you have paid your fine with late penalties"- I think it came to 300 euros.

The problem is that Britain lacks visionaries. We just have sticking plasterers. Not enough motorways convert the hard shoulder into a fourth lane. Traffic jams make the motorways smart and slow at 50 mph. ( taking after making a supersonic plane and then reverting to slower planes)

Need double the airports capacity? Build just one more runway.

There would be plenty of investment money for the right ideas .

Is this the Welsh misery fest ?

That is the one. Mrs V keeps saying Wales is a very odd place

Hidden. Competent enough cop drama but have you noticed it is remarkably similar to The Bridge?:

The male and female leads both have something of a personality disorder for want of a better word
There are subtitles
There is something dark and horrible going on
There is even a bridge!

Big game?
Not going too well in second half. Too much faffing  and passing backwards. Mother in law says the pitch is too big for our lads.

Fingers crossed for a smooth move. I remember it always being stressful especially the time prices were dropping.
