330. WAY TOO FAST
Finally....A VERY GOOD IDEA
I was reading the news in The Levante newspaper that the Valencian local government is going to take measures to solve the big problem of exceeding the speed limits in many streets and avenues and causing terrible accidents.

They are going to install radars in some problematic avenues, as well as cameras when drivers jump red lights.
A lot of people drive "waytoo fast" and therefore, there are more accidents, especially on avenues such as Blasco Ibañez, Los Naranjos and the Puerto Avenues.
The speed limit is 50, but drivers often drive much faster than that.
The other main problem are the motorcycle drivers.
There are motorcycles which easily reach 80 kilometers per hour or a lot more on many avenues.
At this speed it´s very easy to run overpedestrians who are crossing the crosswalk, or even crash into another car because it´s impossible to stop at that speed.
The main cause of accidents in Valencia is because people drive way too fast.
This was the case when a crazy motorcycle driver was going at 103 kilometers per hours in Benicalap.
The driver lost control and crashed into a terrace killing an older woman and injuring 16 people.
People from other parts of Spain and tourists say that Valencian drivers are too agressive when they drive.
They constantly change lanes to go as fast as possible.
Drivers always seem to be in a big hurry to go somewhere and don´t respect the speed limit.
