The new Traffic and Road Safety Law will enter into force on March 21, 2022. We review the rules that we will have to respect then to avoid new fines.
At the beginning of December, Congress approved the reform of the Traffic, Vehicle Circulation and Road Safety Law. It then announced that the new rules and fines would take effect three months after their publication in the BOE. The text appeared in the official book yesterday, with which the new law will be a reality on March 21, 2022.
There are several exceptions. What is published in the BOE establishes that all the measures will become effective three months later, except for the modifications relating to articles 75, 98, 99, 100, 101 and annexes V, VI and VII, which have entered into force today.
Among the measures of the new Traffic Law that come into force today are those that make not paying a toll a minor offense; also breach the obligation of drivers to be at all times in a position to control their vehicle; or offenses by cyclists that do not pose a danger to traffic.
