TONI SUCH, Alfaz’s Public Safety councillor revealed that the number of vehicles on local roads has fallen dramatically.
The only exceptions were a handful of antisocial citizens unable to grasp that only a unanimous response to lockdown could stop the spread of Covid-19 and prevent health service from collapsing, Such added.
Like all Costa Blanca towns, Alfaz tightened up all controls but especially in Albir, anticipating attempts by second-residence owners to visit over Easter.
Such revealed that by the beginning of Easter Week, none had been intercepted, and five vehicles detected by the town’s automatic number plate readers belonged to local residents.
The councillor stressed the local population’s public-spiritedness although since the March 15 lockdown announcement, 120 people had been fined.
“All offences were related to repeatedly ignoring lockdown regulations,” Such revealed.
