It's all included in the Guardia Civil 'Make it up as you go along and fleece the foreigners' manual.

New laws for Spain’s roads in force on the 10th May..

ROAD-USERS are being encouraged to familiarise themselves with Spain’s new traffic laws, in force from today.
There are many changes to the laws, some directly affecting expats. Here the Olive Press lists the most important changes:
Foreign residents must now register vehicles in Spain.
‘Very serious’ speeding offences are punished by a fine of €600 and a loss of six points.
Lesser speeding offences are punished by a fine of €500 and a loss of six points.
Speeding fines can apply for exceeding the limit by just 1kph.
Cyclists under 16 must wear helmets.
Children less than 1.35 metres tall cannot sit in the front seat, except in certain cases, such as cars without back seats.
Traffic police no longer have to stop a vehicle caught breaking the law; they can simply issue a penalty afterwards.
In some towns the speed limit is being reduced from 30kph to 20kph.
If the driver is double the legal alcohol limit, is a frequent offender or refuses to take a breath test then there is a loss of six points and a fine of €1,000.
There is also a loss of four points for a driver who is over the alcohol limit but without doubling it, or a driver under the influence of drugs.
If the driver is not correctly licensed for the vehicle then a loss of four points is applied.Olive Press.

Nothing about carrier bags or plants, then.

As I said, this comes under what we would know as the 'Ways and Means Act'. (Ways of making up motoring offences and Means of extracting money from unsuspecting foreigners).
