DGT predicts that car trips will increase by 3.3% in 2019 compared to 2019.

The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), has created a special operation to ensure safety on Andalusian roads this summer. This is 3.3% more than the 2019 pandemic year and 20.4 million long-distance trips in Andalusia are expected. Four special operations were designed to facilitate mobility and fluidity.

Pedro Fernandez, the Government Delegate in Andalusia called for responsible driving, compliance with traffic regulations, and trip preparation due to the anticipated increase in accidents compared to last year. He reminded that 54 people were killed on Andalusian roads last summer during the special traffic operation.

Ana Luz Jimenez (provincial head of Traffic), coordinator of Andalusia Ceuta Melilla, Ana Luz warned about the high number of deaths in Andalusian roads this year. These data are "worrying" and highlight the importance of using a seatbelt. 35% of tourists killed by car accidents did not wear it, and 29% in fatal van accidents.

These four special operations will continue until today: '1st Summer Exit Operation;' from July 29 through August 1, Departure August 1;' between Friday, the 12th, and Monday, the 15th of august; 'Departure Aug 1'; 'Special Operation on August 15'; and 'Operation Return', which will close all special devices during the summer period.

This Friday, at 3:00 PM, the first operation began. It will finish at midnight. During this period, one million long-distance trips are expected. Pedro Fernandez assured that these numbers will be covered by the "maximum availability of the technical and human resources of DGT", including the Civil Guard Traffic Group agents, 200 troops, helicopter patrols, and personnel responsible for equipment maintenance and installation of road measures.

Two helicopters will join the Andalusian Territory to intensify surveillance. Four drones will also be used for traffic regulation and organization (two of these will have reporting capability), mobile radars, camouflaged vans, and mobile radars. There is also the possibility of deployment across the Autonomous Community. There are 154 fixed speed radars, 16 of which are sectional, and 71 mobile, and seat belt control cameras.

All this is accompanied by a number of special measures such as suspension of certain traffic-related actions or establishment of special measures along the Almeria roads A-7 to AP-7 and the secondary networks. These measures will allow for greater access to tourist rest areas, and second residences, and support more trips.
