I'm off to Spain in a few weeks time and am glad I know about this in advance.

It is an interesting article for other reasons though.

They are also stopping Motor caravans from towing small cars. They insist the vehicles each have a driver.

I always use local transport where possible. I prefer it to having to concentrate on my driving to such an extent that I don't notice my surroundings. I'm off to Lanzarote this weekend and the speed limit is already that low on almost all the roads in the Canaries anyway, so it won't bother me.

I forsee an upswing in the sales of trailers capable of carrying small cars!

"They insist the vehicles each have a driver."

Surely that has the opposite effect, two drives means two engines running, means an increase in fuel use...

Last time I was "pulled over" in Spain the police were carrying rather large guns :0(

Some idiot in front decide to try and drive through the chicane - a stinger was deployed and he was dragged from the car.

the ensuing delay meant we nearly missed our flight.

Why would the car being towed have to have its engine running?
