Police are once again cracking down on unlicensed airport taxi drivers working out of Murcia and Alicante airports. However, this means that they will also catch out innocent people who may be just collecting relatives and friends on a regular basis.
The problem is being made worse at Murcia airport where drivers are coming back to their vehicles to find the tyres slashed. Airport users collecting visitors are advised to “remain with their vehicle” if at all possible, as the airport has been overwhelmed by complaints of tyres being vandalized on the premises.
People carriers have been the main victims of the latest phenomenon, and mainly those which have made more than one visit to the airport within a short period.
