More money making exploits from Spanish police. What with their stopping cars on mass before Christmas to 'boost their bonuses' and now just issuing fines for nothing, it really is the most Corrupt and untrustworthy force in Europe. It's a shame Spanish businesses aren't as commercial!!

It is a funny detail that the people who are stopping travellers and are fining fellow citizens, are mostly not wearing masks themselves. A lot do, but a lot don´t either. Every time I am amazed to see how many police officers and GC are not wearing masks, either in cars (with two people) and or on the street. But, in Spain, these people are above the law anyway.
