For this summer 2021 the Spanish General Directorate of Traffic has updated its list of speed cameras in the province of Málaga, with a total of 54 speed cameras. It is expected to be a busy summer in terms of travelling around our beautiful province and if we prefer to spend our money on cold beers and pescaito instead of fines, it is worth bearing in mind where these fixed speed cameras (properly signposted), stretch radars (those that force you to respect the maximum speed limit for several kilometres) and hidden mobile speed cameras are located.
Speed cameras in Malaga Summer 2021
In Spain are issued more than 4,000,000 road fines every year, of which around half (46 %) relate to speeding.
The province of Malaga currently has 54 speed cameras, of which more than 30 are camouflaged, distributed between the A-7 and A-45, as well as secondary roads.
Exceeding the speed limits can be very expensive: Fines for speeding range from 100 euros without loss of points, up to 600 euros and the possibility of imprisonment.
The motorways and roads with the most speed cameras in the province of Malaga this year are the coastal motorway (A-7), the regional road (A-397) that connects the Serrania de Ronda with the western Costa del Sol, with 6 speed cameras each, followed by the A-45 Malaga-Cordoba motorway.
But the secondary roads are also quite busy, the most important ones being: A-356 between Vélez-Málaga and the reservoir of La Viñuela; A-355 between Marbella, Ojén and Coín or the A-397 from Marbella to Ronda.

Interactive Map of Speed cameras in Malaga province
Google Maps Radar Alert
The Google Maps app now also alerts you to the location of speed cameras and also functions as a speedometer. To do this, you mark your route in the app and speed cameras appear as orange balloons. The app also includes a mobile speed camera warning function trough other users.
We remind you that the radar warning function is legal in Spain, what is illegal is the use of radar detectors and inhibitors.
… and radar detection devices?
There are currently three types of radar location awareness devices of which only one is permitted:
Radar warnings. These come as standard with GPS and have access to the DGT database. They are permitted by law but only display fixed speed cameras.
Radar detectors can detect the signals emitted by speed cameras and warn the driver with an acoustic signal; they have been banned since 2014.
Radar jammers alter the operation of the radar and are prohibited. Their installation carries a fine of 6,000 euros and the withdrawal of six licence points.
In general, we recommend not to exceed more than five percent of the speedometer speed of your car; this way you will avoid being caught by a speed camera. And if you don’t want to be fined, it’s easy: don’t exceed the established speeds.
