More agile, and more fragile – Tráfico speed and safety controls start today to monitor motorbikes

Tráfico has announced an intensive vigilance campaign for motorbikes and mopeds. The campaign will last from today until 25 May, and will involve checkpoints to monitor helmet wearing, safety of vehicles, alcohol and drugs testing, and of course speeding.  The DGT says that to make the campaign as effective as possible, local and regional police forces will supplement Tráfico’s own Guardia Civil teams in order to monitor all types of roads.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
