and the they wonder why 13 were killed on the roads this last week and 30 plus at easter.
But there are far fewer road deaths in Spain than the UK even allowing for the number of vehicles on the road. Also the rate that they have decreased over the last few years is better than in the UK, and the UK have hundreds of times more speed cameras than Spain.
really? i find that surprising it must be out of sheer luck than anything. Especially when you see all the reports like at easter. i guess anytime the motorways get busy ie easter theres crashes all over the place cause they dont know how to drive on m.ways and cant cope with large amounts of traffic
also agree re the slow drivers on the motorways. it seems to be one extreme to the other the amount of
times you have had to pull out because someones driving at 50mph.personally im not prepaired to vhance a fine by driving at the same speed as the others.especially when they swerve in and out like nutcases. perhaos everyone should drive at the limit set and learn how to give way and let ppl in. im sounding like a right okd grumpy expat and its only been 3 months lol.
