I agree with ty!!! icon_cool.gif ,....there was never a problem in Mojacar with Guardia or Locales, until the place became Bridlington by the Med!!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

Read a few of your old posts Ejay, bet youve never moved on, still got long hair by any chance?

Most of those agreeing with the police being in Mojacar in numbers dont live or even visit here and I just wonder if high police presence in their town was to cut their income by half they would still think it was right, I think not.

This week I've spent time in towns such as Almeria, Huercal Overa and Garrucha, hardly a policeman to be seen and those that were there were on road work duty etc.

Do you all think its only Mojacar that has drunks and drivers wearing flip flops? And as for them catching robbers have we ever heard of one being caught by them while on, pick on Mojacar duty, no again I think. They are not looking for 42" tvs in the boot and are only interested in sticking blow pipes in the drivers mouth. Pat.

I live in Mojacar and I don't mind the police - they do what they can to keep the roads safe - we see far too many people in the bars who then drive home.

I personally don't see a problem - if you don't drink and drive then you have nothing to worry about. As for the reference to flip-flops - there is a section in the highway code that states suitable footware - imagine trying to brake hard and your foot slips out of the shoe !!! I can see the reasoning on this - they're not just picking on Mojacar - it's almost a universal driving law.

and Ejay - it's not all like Bridlington by the Med - some parts of Mojacar are still the Mojacar you remember - they can't take the heart out of it - we wouldn't want to be anywhere else icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

Hi
Do the police recieve all or part of any fines given out,a bit like the speed cameras that raise so much revenue in the uk.Supposidly all ploughed back into road safety,but all parties seem to get a share of monies.
regards
Keith

Oakisani, thats the point they are and are not not attacking other towns as they are Mojacar. Lets see it happening in the other towns I mentioned, of course we wont there more Spanish. Just a point how many Guardia are up the Pueblo breathalysing the locals, I dont know the answer but maybe Lenox can tell us? and maybe Angie too as she lives up there. Pat.

We sit and have a coffee or two (possibly sit there for a couple of hours sometimes) on the Playa near the Red Cross, and have very often seen a police car pulling occasional cars in. They do not know who are in the cars when they pull them in, can't tell what nationality and of course they would have more cars to check here - everyone makes their way to the coast for a day out - so no point in going inland to the towns, there's no traffic there - it's all on the coast.

Everybody is breaking some law or other if the police want to be tricky. I think that Mojácar was famous in the old days as a boozers' resort - and is now famous for being a place where you get fined. Me, I can't afford a drink at the moment icon_sad.gif
The Madrid people (Madrileños) have a joke: 'Did you bring back a souvenir back from Mojácar? 'Yes, a multa...'
So yes, we are all alive and un-injured. However, the businesses here and the tourism is suffering thanks to the extreme policing. In America, they have to have 'cause' to stop you. Here they just have 'quotas'.

How the worm turns, its not that long ago some of the more established residents of Mojacar bemoaned the presence of the "bucket and spade" brigade, clogging up the Playa and the Pueblo, and snaffling car parking spaces from under the long suffering residents noses, not to mention interupting the peace of their local watering hole by actually frequenting it and heaven forbid enjoying themselves, now the tourists are saying adios and going elsewhere where hopefully the locals will be a bit more welcoming, but it seems now they will be missed icon_eek.gif

Well, it's still early days - we shall be as sick of the visitors, tourists or what-have-yous, together with the queues, the clogged beach-road and the looky looky men soon enough...
Meanwhile, San Juan (bonfires on the beach, all night fireworks and music) on Wednesday. Mojácar Gay Pride Day (with the mojacar PSOE for some reason) on Saturday... it's all go.

you are breaking the law if you are still driving on UK plates after living here for a year. Six months is the maximum permitted. As you are breaking that law, your insurance may well be invalid. I suggest you hand yourself in at the nearest nick, confess to your crime and be prepared to be the bitch of some hairy-arsed Spanish gangster during your forthcoming incarceration.
cos i have, lived in mojacar a year does not mean i have had the same british plated car a year twit ..........
