This Friday, July 30, the second and most important part of the summer campaign opens the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT). A weekend in which around 4.7 million trips are expected to start the congested month of August. For this reason, the institution is going to carry out an intense work that will have more speed , alcohol and drug controls as well as greater dissemination on the most dangerous roads.
Throughout the summer there are many messages that Traffic has spread to continue raising awareness among Spanish drivers about the problems that may arise on the road. A summer season characterized by the return to the steering wheels , after months of much reduction in all roads as a result of the covid-19, which continues under the objective of “zero fatalities”.
“It has taken us a lot to get to this summer, let’s not spoil it.” It was the phrase that the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska pronounced in the presentation of the campaign and the motto that the entire DGT repeats during these days. For this reason, a series of tips have been implemented that range from the classic ” stop once every two hours of travel “, to the increasingly repeated ” do not get distracted with your mobile behind the wheel “.
Speed, safety distance, seat belts, the prohibited consumption of alcohol and drugs or special attention to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are the other tips that in this second phase of the summer campaign will become even more important. And it is that these days more displacements have been detected on conventional roads, a larger nucleus of cyclists and a large traffic on the coastlines.
Roadside cameras will focus more on monitoring the belt and the use of the mobile at the wheel
Facts that have led Traffic to introduce more cameras that monitor the use of seat belts and mobile phones behind the wheel, to paralyze the works that were being carried out during these days and to introduce additional lanes and alternative routes. All complemented with the more than 1,000 radars that exist throughout the Spanish geography, led by 12 Pegasus helicopters and 39 drones .
Finally, with special relevance in certain points due to the greater traffic that takes place on these dates, the DGT has made a list of the roads that will have the most influx of vehicles this weekend.
