Inca modifies the traffic ordinance

The City Council of Inca initially approved, during the last ordinary session of the municipal plenary, the modification of the municipal traffic ordinance. In this way, the consistory of the capital of the Raiguer wants to adapt the text to the normative changes of higher rank that have been implemented during the last months, as well as to adapt the regulation to the new forms of mobility increasingly widespread.

“The mobility ordinance is a living text that has been modified to solve the problems and needs that arise. Now, with this latest update, we want to pacify the circulation between pedestrians and vehicles with reduced mobility -especially scooters-, increase the available parking spaces and simplify the ordinance to collect only the particularities of the municipality, “says the mayor of Inca, Virgilio Moreno.

Thus, the new ordinance includes the modifications made by the General Directorate of Traffic regarding personal mobility vehicles and applies the maximum possible requirements for electric scooters, in accordance with current regulations. Thus, electric scooters must be ridden on the roadway and can no longer be ridden on sidewalks or pedestrian areas. On the other hand, it will be mandatory to wear a helmet and reflective vest. In addition, civil liability insurance is also required for the driver of a personal mobility vehicle.

With regard to regulatory changes on parking, the maximum parking time at an electric vehicle recharging point is increased from two to four hours. Likewise, the possibility is enabled for rental vehicles to park in areas with limited traffic affectation, by previously requesting a license.

Finally, coinciding with the implementation of new software for the collection of taxes and the management of sanctioning proceedings, the sanctioning table is also modified to adapt it to the new system. In this case, the content does not change, but only the form.
