THE watchful eye of the law will focus on drivers across Malaga Province, as a number of new cameras will be installed specifically to target those not wearing their seatbelt or people using their mobile phones.
Both infractions are punishable by docking three points from a licence and a €200 fine.
The number of cameras, the date of the installation and their definitive locations have not been decided yet, but the Malaga Province traffic chief said they are aiming to have them ready before summer. Most of them will be located near secondary roads.
Last year saw 4,694 cases of mobile phone use and 3,709 seatbelt infractions across the province, and more should be anticipated this year should the plans come together.
