Officers from the Guardia Civil carried out 6,548 inspections of car mechanical workshops in 2014, and found a total of 17,070 administrative violations.

The information was released this week which details the activities of the law enforcers in collaboration with garage and vehicle maintenance association.

Illegal and unlicensed garages are considered a risk on account of some of them endangering road safety, environmental requirements, tax and social security evasion and providing unfair competition to those who operate within the confines of the law.

During the month of October last year the Guardia Civil intensified inspections of garages, the result being 238 being forced to shut their doors permanently.
