Terrassa City Council sets up parking areas for GPS usage (Spain)

English

The use of electronic devices while driving is banned by Spanish traffic regulations. However, some drivers continue to look up routes on their phones or satellite navigation systems whilst travelling, which endangers both other road users and themselves.

To counteract this, Terrassa City Council - located in the Catalonia region of Spain - will soon introduce special parking areas that provide drivers with a place to stop and input their new routes. It is believed to be the first initiative of its kind worldwide.

Forum mobility

This FORUM organized by the association "FOR URBAN PASSION" is held on May 11, in BOZAR.

The theme "New Use <> New Move. Land Use & Mobility" will open the page of the city by 2030.

This prospective look will be based on the findings: what is moving in our lives (work, housing, habits of consumption, etc.) and how we have already changed our ways of moving (electric scooter or bike, renting or sharing cars, etc.) Do these changes bode well for the city of tomorrow?

Drinks and lunch are included in the price.
