The Guardia Civil will be keeping an eye in the sky on the traffic activities around Ibiza's big discos this summer. They now have the use of a special helicopter which can report any traffic related misdemeanours to the Guardia's boys on the ground at the troublesome time when the discos disgorge thousands of customers onto the roads.

Traffic authorities are worried about the high death toll on Ibiza's roads so far this year. Thirteen people have already lost their lives in 2005 but in all of last year the number was 17. The cause for most of the accidents was excess speed and in the Balearic islands as a whole only 18 of the 42 fatalities were wearing seat belts.
