The Director General of Traffic, Pere Navarro, has advocated for modifying the legislation relating to Road Safety in such a way as to prevent, hinder or limit the one that can inform through applications on mobile devices about where police or traffic agents are located on any road.
The head of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has expressed his opinion In this regard this morning in A Coruña, a city that he has visited to learn about the city’s initiatives in Road Safety, when asked about the proposal of the Galician Prosecutor’s Office to reform the Law so that applications are prohibited or sanctioned to the people who use them.
Navarro explained that his department shares this criterion and that he has already presented proposals in this regard, especially because “there may be someone fleeing from a crime” and “it does not seem reasonable that they can know where the patrols are police “.
On the other hand, and regarding traffic accidents, Pere Navarro has avoided commenting on the data for this year, in which there has been a reduction of 6% this summer, for example, Since the coronavirus is turning out to be a “strange year, and nothing comparable with the historical series”.
Yes he has explained that Last year, for the first time, there were more deaths of vulnerable users than of people traveling in four-wheelers, and has called for “focusing efforts” on the “protection” of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
