Guardia Civil have launched a new campaign, with an aim to reduce the number of deaths of motorcyclists over the summer months.

Locally there will be an increase in monitoring roads used by motorcyclists, to ensure that drivers of all vehicles respect each other. Last year the number of motorbikes on the nations roads totalled 3.2 million, or 10%.

However, motorcyclists were involved in nearly a quarter of all road accidents, with 343 motorcyclists losing their lives.
