Spain’s Congress of Deputies approved the measures that aid banning the use of a GPS device by motorists while driving.

The use of GPS devices is restricted as they are loaded with maps that warn motorists of locations where speed cameras are in use.

The provision emerged as part of a broader measure designed to update the traffic code with measures that encourage motorists to pay fines without challenge.

The usage of devices that reduce emphasis on driving will earn a three-point (US$275) fine according to legislation.

Regulations to implement the legislation will be developed by the Ministry of the Interior.
