Road safety is an important concern for all those involved on the road. To ensure safe circulation, the Dirección General de Tráfico in Valencia has launched a special campaign to monitor and control vehicles used to transport goods and people. The campaign is part of RoadPol’s Operation Truck&Bus, a European initiative that will run from today until 19 February 2023.
The campaign will focus on several important aspects that can affect road safety. The speed at which vehicles are driven will be one of the most important aspects to be checked, along with driving and resting hours, the use of the tachograph and the possible existence of technical defects in the vehicle. In addition, attention will be paid to the safety of the load being transported, the use of seat belts, driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, and the use of mobile phones.
The controls will be carried out on all roads and at all times, and will be carried out by officers from the Guardia Civil’s Traffic Department, as well as by other local and regional police forces that join the campaign. The intention is to carry out exhaustive surveillance to guarantee the safety of all those taking part in the traffic.
It is important to stress that road safety is everyone’s responsibility. It is therefore essential to comply with the established rules and regulations to ensure safe traffic. The DGT is continuously working to improve road safety, and this campaign is an example of its commitment to the safety of road users.
In conclusion, the DGT’s special surveillance and control campaign is an important initiative to ensure road safety. By complying with the established rules and regulations, and by being aware of our responsibility for road safety, we can ensure safe circulation for all. The DGT is committed to road safety, and this campaign is a further example of its commitment to this important issue.
