SPEED TRAPS: Police are taking action to reduce accidents on road black spots.

THIRTY more speed traps are being planned for accident black spots on Alicante Province’s main roads.

The move by the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) comes as part of a nationwide campaign to reduce fatal accidents on conventional roads with two-way traffic where the mortality rate is considerably higher than on motorways or roads with dual carriageways. 

More speed traps are planned all along the N-332 except within the Alicante City limits as well as the N-338 that links the N-339 and the A-70 with Alicante airport. Radar vigilance will also be stepped up on the N-340 from Crevillente as far as the Murcia border.

A total of 913 lives were lost on main roads with two-way traffic last year, 45 more than in 2014.
