Fines for speeding dropped drastically in Malaga province in the first six months of this year – down to 28,551 as opposed to 43,293 in the same period last year. A spokesman for the provincial Traffic Authority said this was due to the seven installed radar controls and the points system. He said another seven radars will be installed in the near future. Meanwhile, the Guardia Civil traffic patrols have launched a campaign to enforce the correct use of lanes on the highways and of indicators. The spokesman said it was to make drivers more aware of the fact that they should stick to the right-hand lane unless they were going to overtake. He said the incorrect use of the left-hand lane caused back-ups and slowed down the traffic.
