The 'eyes' of the Civil Guard of Traffic multiply. More and more ways are being monitored by infractions committed at the wheel. This summer, the protagonists have been the drones, devices that so far only did surveillance work but have already begun to fine.
In August, the DGT will pay special attention to the consumption of alcohol and drugs, a month with a lot of festivities spread throughout the national geography. To detect possible infractions, Traffic has launched a new surveillance mode .
These are camouflaged vans. While it is true that vehicles are civil, those that have been used as evidence carry a 'PGC' license plate, especially for Civil Guard vehicles. The vans circulate among the other cars and thus the agents have a perspective to detect, for example, if they are using the mobile. The pilot experience is being developed in Galicia, where two serious driving behaviors were viralized this week.
In a video, two agents detect several drivers using the mobile at the wheel or with a wireless headset. "In just 30 minutes we have observed four infractions," they explain. When the drivers are surveyed, there is a difference in criteria. Some say that it is "fundraising" and others that will help reduce this type of distractions, which are already the first trigger for accidents.
