Road campaign cancelled

An Algarve Civil Government road accident prevention campaign due to be held on November 27 was cancelled due to bad weather.

The event,  which would offer law abiding drivers on the A22 a first aid kit, is now going to be rescheduled but a new date has yet to be confirmed.

Faro Civil Governor Isilda Gomes said: “Despite numerous awareness campaigns and constant surveillance by the police, road accidents continue to happen in an overwhelming number in the region. “The message to be conveyed to drivers is to avoid risky behaviour on roads and respect traffic regulations.”
