Spanish authorities are stepping up van checks throughout the country
This week, an inspection campaign is being conducted on vans in Spain. The campaign is carried out by the General Directorate for Traffic (DGT) and local police forces.
Yesterday in Spain, the campaign aimed at increased bus checks started. It concerns primarily on goods transport vehicles. The actions are carried out on the initiative of the General Directorate for Traffic (DGT). Checks are also carried out by the police, according to the Spanish media.
The services focus primarily on the following:
– vehicle and driver documents,
– cargo securing,
– technical condition of the vehicle, in particular, the tyres,
– check for the presence of prohibited substances in the driver’s body.
The aim of the campaign is to increase road safety in the country. Last year, delivery vehicles were involved in around 11,000 accidents, with 234 fatalities. This represents around 13% of all fatalities in 2018.
