The Traffic Department (DGT) has updated its list of especially dangerous stretches of secondary highways throughout the country, including 31 in Málaga province, which will be targeted with increased radar patrolling.

DGT officials said the list, now in its fourth edition after first being launched in July 2015, is aimed at making drivers aware of the danger on these stretches so that they can take extra precautions. The dangerous-road designation is based on criteria such as number of accidents, deaths and injuries, the average speed of traffic and other factors.

The 31 stretches of road listed in Málaga province total 627 kilometres, while nationwide the list includes 1,331 stretches (13.5% of them newly listed in this latest update) totalling 26,897 kilometres.
