Portugal, the great controversy of traffic reform for motorhomes


The Portuguese government has initiated a reform of the highway code, which includes a crucial change for motorhomes. This reform effectively provides for the prohibition of parking motorhomes at unauthorized places. In short: prohibition becomes the rule and freedom the exception...

In most European countries, you can park a motorhome where it is not prohibited; that is to say, in countless places. This is the case in France, for example. And this has been the case so far in Portugal. But a regulatory text that modifies the highway code that reverses the logic of this rule. The text was approved by the Council of Ministers on November 27 and will be promulgated shortly.

The text establishes "the prohibition of parking and overnight stays in motorhomes outside the authorized places"; In other words, you can only park and stay overnight in sites, authorized areas or campsites. We assume that the anger among Portuguese motorhomers must be generalized, as this is a radical change. From being a welcoming country for the motorhomer, Portugal is going to drive away this group.
