Speeding Fines

For those that have been on the Keyline rally before, or are frequent drivers in Europe, you may know that if you set off a fixed “radar” speed camera in France/Spain then there was pretty much zero chance of a fine landing on your doorstep.

Fines can be up to €750 and are levied against the keeper of the vehicle, not who was actually driving at the time (unlike in the UK)
