La Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT) has upped the number of mobile radar speed traps across the Valencian region with a focus on roads which have seen an increasing number of accidents. Monitoring was increased over last weekend’s holiday period and one route that is being covered more extensively is the N-332 between Torrevieja and Santa Pola. DGT say that the expanded list of roads now sees 154 stretches that are being monitored for speeding and other infractions.
Meanwhile, new speed reading equipment has been put into the San Juan tunnel on the A-70 motorway near Alicante. The old speed detectors have been replaced by more modern gear, situated at the side near to the tunnel entrances, rather than above, which can now monitor vehicles over a longer distance than before, looking for motorists who break the 80 kilometres per hour limit.
