Seat belts must be worn in both the front and back of the vehicle.

The Roads in Spain
The road infrastructure has been much improved in recent times but there are still a number of
'scenic routes' which if taken are slow.
On those routes which have been improved there is no
great time saving in taking the motorways.
If you do take a motorway bear in mind that Spains motorways are toll roads.
