Guía de Isora reduces municipal traffic fines

Well, how often can we say the price of something has gone down? In Guía de Isora, however, something has. The entire municipal traffic bylaw has been brought up to date, and part of the socialist borough’s modernisation has involved recognizing the financial constraints people are living under. Concejal de Seguridad Ciudadana Cristina García said that in today’s economic climate, a council should not be considering using fines as a means of generating revenue – as so many are doing, see HERE - but rather to dissuade people from uncivic behaviour, including breaking traffic rules. The council has therefore reduced fines for “light” offences, making them “more moderate”, and more in keeping with that ethos.

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.
