THE DGT traffic authority has published an updated list of black spots on Spanish roads including 28 within Malaga Province, many of which are in the Guadalhorce Valley.
The list, the DGT explained, is updated regularly following analysis of data on the number of accidents and victims and average speeds resulting in accidents. Thirty-five per cent of stretches pinpointed were new additions to the blacklist.
Within Malaga Province, 16 of the 28 conflictive points were located in the Guadalhorce with Coin, Pizarra and Cartama areas being particularly bad.
