Council expresses concern regarding repeated motorcycle races on the island

carreteres webPresident of the Formentera Island Council Jaume Ferrer expressed his concern to Island Director to the National Administration Rafael Garcia Vila regarding the motorcycle races staged every weekend on portions of Formentera highways.

The Council president raised the issue in a telephone conversation with Garcia Vila in view of the danger posed by the races to anyone who finds himself on the street at that time. Not only dangerous, the vehicles are often extremely bothersome due to the high noise levels they produce, as manifested on numerous occasions by neighbours.

Since the remit of the Council is limited in this regard, we call upon the National Administration to adopt the necessary measures – whether via the Guàrdia Civil or the Traffic Guàrdia Civil – to put a stop to this problem before any serious accidents occur.
