Driving in Spain is on the right. Roads are well maintained as a general rule, although some country roads may be unlit at night. Spain has strict drink driving laws, allowing drivers a limit of 0.5mg of alcohol compared to the UK limit of 0.8mg. The wearing of seatbelts is obligatory for front and back seat passengers, with a fine issued to the driver if a passenger is found not to be wearing one. Speed limits are enforced, particularly in built-up areas, with fines common for those caught speeding.
