For this, we will focus on the elderly who are the most afected by this type of accident, as well a security infrastructure with special interest in enhancing the features aimed at preventing such accidents. 1. USER BEHAVIOUR - We will conduct road safety talks in retirement clubs, in collaboration with the Government of Navarra, regarding drivers and pedestrian behaviour. - We will increase preventive controls within the city regarding Alcohol testing, ITV (Technical Inspection of Vehicles), motorcycles, etc.. conducted by the Local Police. 2. INFRASTRUCTURE SAFETY We will implement the following: - Installation of traffic lights with a countdown timer, lighting, expanded sidewalks and elevated pedestrian crossings to ensure the reduction of speed, ease the transition and increase security. - Replace fencing to prevent pedestrians crossing the road in dangerous places. - Placing of speed reduction facilities. - Reinforce the supervision and the maintenance of vertical and horizontal signaling specifically at dangerous areas.
