There are several radars in Malaga with which you must be careful if you rent a car; these radars are speed radars, stretch radars and mobile radars although the latter are not indicated.
Remember that being fined while driving a rental car does not exclude you from paying the fine and will increase with the corresponding administrative expenditure of the rental company managing your fine.
Top radars in Malaga
The following radars are known to be among the most active in Spain and for being quite controversial so I recommend being especially careful if you drive around the area.
Speed radar and stretch radar of Las Pedrizas: 80 Km / h
Installed in early 2014 they are currently the most active radars in Spain with about 100 daily fines. As due to the steep slope it is easy to exceed the speed limit even without accelerating, many drivers choose to take the toll road and avoid it.
Radar of the motorway A-7 Rincon de la Victoria – El Palo: 80 Km/h
There are two radars, one in each direction; the one of Rincon de la Victoria at kilometre 256 in direction to Marbella and the one of El Palo at kilometre 246 in direction to Nerja.
Although the mentioned radars are among the 10 in Spain which collect more fines, there are more radars along the Costa del Sol with which you must be careful.

The radars are activated when exceeding in 8 km / h the established limit and the penalties are detailed below.
