  • They will come into operation as from October, at the information stage: anyone failing to comply with the regulations will receive a warning. Once that stage is over, at the start of 2023, fines will start to be issued.Speeding is one of the most important factors as an indirect cause of accidents in the city. To ensure people comply with speed limits and reduce risky behaviour, an automated control system has been launched through a network of radars inside the city, in response to the goals set out under the Urbana Mobility Plan (PMU) for 2024 and the Barcelona Local Road Safey Plan for 2019-22.A work group made up by the Department for Mobility, Barcelona’s Guàrdia Urbana [city police] and Urban Model has established the location of the 17 new radars:
