Be safe on the roads

The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) are anticipating 16 million car journeys to take place during the holiday season, nine million* of them on the roads in Valencia.

The first phase of "Operation Christmas 2012/2013", designed by Tráfico, will end at midnight on December 25

The second phase will run from Friday December 28 until January 1, 2013.

The Feast of Kings will be the third and final part of Operation Christmas beginning on Friday 4 January to midnight Monday January 7.

The Government delegate in Valencia, Paula Sánchez de León, has stressed the recommendations of DGT "zero alcohol, zero dugs and take your time." Be warned, there will be extra patrols out there to help ease the problems and at the same time catch those who flout the law.

Numbers of accidents during the holiday period have dropped dramatically over the last few years and the hope is that they will continue to fall this year.

* When I read that again, I realised my mistake in just writing nine!
