Scooter.jpg

 

 

Electric scooters have risen enormously in popularity in the last year and are now considered a convenient method of transport. More and more people are opting to use scooters to get to work in the mornings or to move around towns and cities. The benefits of these scooters are clear: they are quick, cheap to run and can be folded and carried around easily.

We must admit we loved the idea of zipping about town with minimal effort, no need to circle round for parking etc. But the speed of some of them did have us concerned and a friend of ours already picked up a 200€ fine!

New regulations have been put in place by Spain’s Directorate of Traffic after drivers, pedestrians and policemen complained about the dangerous practices of some electric scooter users.

Now, after thousands of complaints and accidents, Spain’s Directorate of Traffic has announced a series of temporary regulations that electric scooter users must comply with. The regulations are standing in until new laws in line with the European Union are passed.

Sub-director at the General Directorate of Traffic has said that the formal regulation of personal transporter vehicles has been requested by policemen who struggle to respond to certain situations involving electric scooters. He added that a lot of officers believe they are having a negative impact on road safety, especially in bigger towns and cities.

The regulation considers personal transporters as vehicles with one or more wheels that are designed for one person and are propelled exclusively by electric motors, with a maximum speed between 6 and 25 kilometres per hour.

The regulation states the electric scooters can’t circulate on the pavement

According to the regulations, electric scooters are no longer allowed to circulate on the pavement or on pedestrian zones, as they can put pedestrians in harms way. A €200 sanction will be given to electric scooters circulating in areas meant exclusively for pedestrians.

People on scooters will also be obliged to undergo alcohol and drug tests and would be fined between €500 and €1,000 in the case of exceeding alcohol rates or in the presence of drugs. The use of mobile phones and earplugs is also completely banned and users will be fined €200 if found to do so. More punishable offences are circulating at night without wearing a reflecting vest or a lighting system and more than one person at a time on the scooter.

If a minor is fined, it will be the parents or guardians who will be liable for the infraction committed by the person under 18 years of age.

 

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Specsavers Ópticas Marbella and Fuengirola have launched a campaign to collect non-perishable food for those in need on the Costa del Sol.

It has joined the Operación Kilo Campaign, thanks to a collaboration with the Costa del Sol’s Food Bank (Bancosol). Bancosol distributes food via charities and associations to help the most vulnerable people in society. They contribute to a network of food banks operating throughout Spain which is currently supplying food to 1.5 million people. Specsavers Ópticas will be collecting food for them until the end of the year.

Bancosol are particularly in need of the following non-perishable foods – oil, milk, tinned foods and meals, beans and pulses. These products can be dropped into Specsavers Ópticas in Fuengirola or Marbella.

You can find them on Avenida Ramon y Cajal 6 in Fuengirola, by the bus station, or on Avenida Ricardo Soriano 12, next to Massimo Dutti. Donations are very welcome in both stores until the end of the year. Visit www.specsavers.es to find your nearest store.

The directors of these opticians are asking for donations of food in return for their free eye test and encouraging anyone who recently had a free eye test to also join the collection and bring in some food to donate between the 27th of November and the end of the year.

Find out more about the important work Bancosol is doing on their website www.bancosol.info or follow them on Facebook @bancosolmalaga

Xmas-Lights.jpg

Malaga city’s much-anticipated Christmas light display will have a celebrity start this evening (Friday) when actor Antonio Banderas gets the job of flicking the switch.

This year the city’s central light displays have been completely renewed, although the central Calle Larios will still be the scene for a light and music show every evening between now and 6 January. Events kick off this evening at 6.30pm.

Among the new features this year is the projection of a Christmas story in Calle Alcazabilla, with the Alcazaba castle as the backdrop. From Saturday these shows will adopt a regular timetable coinciding with the displays in Calle Larios, at 6.30pm, 8pm and 9.30pm.

The newly pedestrianised and landscaped Alameda Principal will also be one of the city’s focal points. Private funding from El Corte Ingés, the Metro construction group and Fundación Unicaja has contributed to a new show focusing on an ancient ficus tree close to Calle Larios. The enchanted tree will come to life every evening, with regular times from Saturday at 7.15pm, 9pm and 10.15pm.

Fuengirola

Christmas spirit also arrives this weekend in towns around the region as lights go on. Fuengirola’s big switch-on is scheduled for 7.30pm this evening (Friday) in the Plaza de España. The evening will also see the opening of the Christmas market and a dance display.

Marbella

Saturday (30 November) is the big night for Marbella, where the focal point will be the “big Christmas tree” in Avenida del Mar which will offer its own light and music show at 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Festivities this evening kick off in the Paseo de la Alameda with a street parade and children’s party from 5pm.

Neighbouring San Pedro also starts the season this Saturday with a children’s street parade from the Plaza de la Iglesia. The big switch-on will be at 7pm, which will be followed by a free concert from Merche (Spanish singer). The music and light show in Marqués de Duero will take place three times every evening, at 6.30, 7.30 and 8.30pm

According to nanny cam footage from a home in Santa Monica, California, a little girl identified only as Vivi was having trouble sleeping in her crib last month.

The little girl can be heard calling to her brother Levi from across the room and asking if she could sleep in his bed with her security blanket and baby doll.

After taking a moment to consider his sister’s proposal, Levi accepts her offer and fetches a stool so she can safely climb out of her crib.

Vivi manages to climb over the railing only to realize that she forgot her baby doll. Luckily, her doting older brother was happy to assist.
