Speed traps

The Traffic Department DGT are planning to install 175 new speed cameras across the country of which 15 will be placed in the Valencia Region including six in Alicante Province.

The sites chosen for the extra speed traps are in Alfaz del Pi, Torrevieja, Orihuela and Cox.

Cameras will be installed on the N-332 at kilometre marks 46 and 141, which correspond to Torrevieja and Alfaz del Pi, on the N-340 in Cox at kilometres 687 and 694 and at an undisclosed location in Orihuela. The cameras will cover traffic going in both directions.

Once the new radars are installed it will bring the number of speed cameras in operation throughout Spain up to 317.

DGT says it intends to increase the number to 500 by the end of the year but this will still leave Spain with the least amount of speed cameras than any of its EU counterparts.
