A traffic sign prohibiting parking on Avenida Juan Carlos I in El Médano, for all vehicles that exceed 1.90 meters in width -although there is some permissibility on the part of the Local Police- has been a source of controversy in that area where park the vans and motorhomesnot only of the residents in the nearby buildings, but also those who want to enjoy water sports such as surfing or windsurfing, the vast majority.
From the Granadilla Town Hall, contrary to what is said, it is recalled that this sign is fully in force, a measure that was adopted as a result of neighborhood complaints against the permanent presence of motorhomes and approved in a municipal plenary session after technical reports from the Local Police, in which the problems of the buses to travel along the avenue were recorded. However, the owner of a surf school, who has been in El Médano for two years, points out that “my Volkswagen Crafter van is 2.40 wide and I cannot park to unload the material and even to take the disabled students that I have from a institute”, lamenting that “they fine me and whoever has been parked there for days they do not remove the caravan, despite the fact that they are imposing fines of 80 to 200 euros”.
“I have my legal school, however the vast majority do not,” said the owner of the surf school, who warned of a “growing unrest” in the area due to the controversial installation of the traffic signal.
