It doesn't apply to tourists - unless they keep a car in Spain.
Also folks moving lock, stock and barrel to Spain can no longer keep their car on foreign number plates for 6 months - they have only 1 month.

I think you will find that it will apply to ANY vehicle that is in Spain for over a month , as they want to know where to send any parking/motoring offenses you create whilst motoring in Spain, at the moment they have no idea, and with number plat recognition it will be easy to see if the vehicle has been registered, if not a nice fine , with hired cars they just bill the company then the hire company takes it out off your credit card they have on your behalf

It says 'ex-pats LIVING in Spain and 'cars other than those for vacational us'.

There are rumours that tourists, who drive to Spain, and who spend months out at any time will need to notify the traffic police of where they are staying because of the problem of issuing fines. But this has not been confirmed.
The new law mainly affects those who spend less than 6 months in Spain - but keep a foreign plated car at the airport, or in a garage etc. Up until now this has been OK because the car has been 'off road' for more than 6 months of the year - but no longer………

Whilst on the subject of motoring , went over to Calais Friday and was informed that the French has dropped that stupid law regarding carrying a Breathalyzer kit in the car, could not find my one anyway, wine like in Spain is still very cheap Merlot red about a fiver [5.65e ] for 4 bottles should keep us going for a week or two Ha/Ha

It cars caught on works the other way as well, there is no mechanism for the UK to pursue Spanish Registered cars caught on Cameras
