Spain’s highway agency, the DGT, is set to disclose the whereabouts of speed cameras across the country, in a move likely to make it easier for drivers to evade fines. The surprise move was announced by DGT director Maria Segui:- “This initiative is being implemented so that drivers abide by the established speed limits, especially on stretches of road that have been identified as very dangerous,” Segui explained. Drivers will now receive early warning of speed cameras’ presence, giving them a chance to put their foot on the brake if necessary. They’ll also be able to view all the camera checkpoints, both fixed and mobile, on the DGT website. Segui added that Spain is “one of the safest countries in terms of moving around” according to 2014 figures, but the sharp decrease in deaths over the past decade has now reached a plateau, with only three less road deaths than in 2013.
