Traffic Speed Control Campaign 13th April 2015

Tráfico has announced a speed control campaign for this week starting today and lasting until Sunday 19th, and focusing on conventional roads rather than motorways. Tráfico says that at least 350 deaths a year could be avoided if everyone complied with speed limits, and that someone knocked down at 80km/h has no chance of surviving the impact, whereas at 30km/h the risk of death is reduced to just 10%. This campaign will, as normal, use support from local police forces for checkpoints.
