The points' system in Spain works through the loss of points as opposed to their being added up.

12-09-2013Vasil Vasilev

Since the new points’ system was introduced in Spain in 2006, a similar one to that which has been in place for years in the United Kingdom, a total of 2,352 drivers have lost all the points on their licences, according the Guardia Civil traffic department yesterday.

Of these 2,352 drivers, 2,283 have lost all their points on just the one occasion while 69 have lost their licences twice.
On the mainland, however, there are three drivers in three different municipalities who have been stripped of their licences on no less than three occasions and, as the Bulletin has been reporting, the highway patrol has stepped up controls on Balearic roads.

As a newcomer driving on the Island, I find the dangerous manuveres many drivers use as being almost childish in their belief that this is safe driving. The 2 worst being, Tailgating (bullying) & sudden, last second lane change. Who on earth taught these people to drive. Young girls are as bad as any others. You live in paradise, so whats the rush? where you rushing to? its only a small island, enjoy the ride. Remember, the slowest driver is always leading the queue, and the fastest driver is always behind.
