What little-known fines might drivers in Spain face?


For example, drivers in Spain are prohibited from sticking their hands out of the window, as well as driving in flip-flops or without a T-shirt.


In addition, Spanish law enforcement agencies believe that eating while driving can greatly distract a driver from the situation on the road. Therefore, such actions threaten the life and health of other road users and entail a fine.


In addition, the Spaniards are not allowed to kiss while driving. Just like in the case of eating, a kiss can distract the driver and this can lead to irreversible consequences.


We told you more about little-known violations and how they can be punished in our article.


Traveling to Spain is an unforgettable experience, but to avoid problems and additional costs, Ukrainians need to be aware of the rules and fines in force in this country. Travel responsibly and with respect for local laws and culture, and your trip will turn into an unforgettable adventure.


We remind you! From now on, Ukrainians staying in Valencia will be able to issue passport documents at the new Passport Service unit. For more information on the working hours and location of the new office, please click here.
