Police urged to take action over photocopied badges
La Laguna is leading the way in calling for a clampdown on fraudulent disabled parking badges.
The problem has been raised with authorities across Tenerife and now the Popular Party of La Laguna feels there has to be some kind of tough action.
Party spokesman, Iván González Riverol says they are requesting information on what measures the Local Police of La Laguna are adopting to fight against the proliferation of people using disabled badges which have been potocopied.
“After the last actions carried out by different local security bodies in different municipalities, it is pertinent that the Local Police take action in the matter by carrying out an exhaustive control of the existing cards and the veracity of them,” he said.
González Riverol will ask the municipal government about the measures they are taking for their control in the next plenary session, clarifying that “in the event anomalies and falsifications are detected, exemplary decisions must be made.”
He said the false cards often went unnoticed by the police.
