Spain announces €12 million road safety improvements

FIFTEEN urgent measures to reduce mortality rates on Spanish roads, have been unveiled by interior minister Ignacio Zoido.

The improvements, estimated to cost around €12 million, include cameras that check drivers are using seatbelts, 60 speed cameras and dynamic speed limit signs.

Some €5 million euros will be used to paint 3,000 km of road with a special strip which vibrates when drivers go over them to help prevent accidents caused by distractions and falling asleep at the wheel.

The measures follow a rise in deaths on Spanish roads last year to 1,160, which broke a 13-year downward trend.
