Road Safety Boost
The Spanish Government has budgeted 754.52 million euro for road safety in 2016, 2.8% more than this year. The increase was announced on Tuesday during the state budget presentation to congress.
The increase is aimed at three key areas of road safety, such as reducing the number of victims of traffic incidents, ensuring mobility through proper traffic management and the management of documentation through the eGovernment computerized system.
There is also an anticipated increase in the number of driving instructors in 2016, although the driver education industry has been critical of the lengthy delays for examinations and the financial suffering their industry has faced through this summer.
