Any driver will know that a highway is a road that has four or more lanes, with different directions of traffic, which are separated by a central median, and whose access is controlled, requiring a payment to access. This is the main difference between a highway and a highway, among others. On these roads, the flow of traffic is less and they are usually better maintained, which is why they are a good option for many travelers. While many others discard them precisely because of this toll they require for their use. But what if they were free?
In Spain you can find a series of highways that, although they generally require payment to drive through their sections, have certain time slots in which they allow drivers to use them for free. Specifically, during the night. So it will be something to keep in mind for people who travel at those times of the day or also when planning trips and vacations.
Drivers who have no problem driving at night or who are especially early risers are in luck, since they will be able to travel on these highways completely free of charge between 00:00 and 6:00 in the morning. This way they can organize their routines and trips to take advantage of this opportunity and the benefits that these types of routes offer. In total, there are ten highways that allow free driving at night, a good part of them are located in the Community of Madrid.
However, we must not forget that driving at night involves a series of disadvantages for which it will be essential to be prepared. Since, according to data provided by the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), 40% of accidents with fatalities take place at night.
