euro tours quad rules fines buggy

New rules for quad-buggy tours - Fines up to 3,000 Euro
#1
The new insular ordinance regulating the transit of quads and similar vehicles in protected natural areas and in the areas of the Red 2000 entered into force today (March 20th 2019), after the announcement of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura in the Official Gazette of the Province (BOP).

The Cabildo, competent administration in the regulation, establishes two types of authorizations, of general regime or subject to the system of quotas (in four time slots between 08.00 and 20.00 hours). The following routes are established: Parque Holandés- Casilla de Costa (La Oliva); Burnt mountain to kilometre point 2.1 of the FV30 (Puerto del Rosario); Playa del Valle (Betancuria); Triquivijate-Little Black (Antigua); Juan Gopar-Giniginámar (Tuineje) Ensenada de Gran Valle (Tuineje); Lighthouse of La Entallada (Tuineje); The Wall-Costa Calma (Pájara); Esquino-Barranco de Los Canarios (Pájara) and Morro Jable-Cofete (Pájara).

In total, the routes total 230 kilometres and, for the president of the Cabildo, Marcial Morales, they must be "sufficient" to "order" an activity, which "may be positive" but provided it is carried out in a "rational" manner and that "does not deteriorate" a "privileged but very fragile nature".

In the case of non-profit activity for cars, vans, SUVs, SUVs and quad, buggy, motorcycle or that do not require an engine and weighing less than 3.5 Tm, it is not necessary to request prior administrative authorization and stipulates the presentation of a responsible declaration, with the data of the applicant and the vehicle, the route and civil liability insurance. In this case, only one caravan of six vehicles per time slot is allowed.

To request authorization to activities for profit, for quads, buggies, trial bikes, enduro or cross, cars, vans, SUVs, is established in the quota system, a maximum of 10 vehicles per strip, in all cases electrical, once the call is published in the BOP, with the relevant requirements. If there is more than one company that wants to make excursions in the same time slot of any of the routes mentioned, it is envisaged that a distribution will be made by lot.

The norms contemplate a maximum speed of 30 kilometres and 20 in curves and descents; tires with a depth of less than 15 mm and a maximum diameter of 34 inches; parking places, priority of walkers and bicycles and a specific protocol for waste and measures against oil spillage.

The Cabildo, as the competent body, may revoke the administrative title that legitimized the circulation activity in case of non-compliance and reserves the application of the sanctioning regime that determines pecuniary sanctions ranging from 1,501 to 3,000 euros for very serious infractions, to between the 751 and 1,500 euros of the serious ones and between the 100 and 750 euros of the slight infractions.

The Cabildo expects to have three surveillance bodies that handle complaints of non-compliance: the SEPRONA de la Guardia Civil, the local Police of the municipalities and the Environment agents of the insular corporation, although "any citizen can denounce" a breach of the insular ordinance, "said Marcial Morales.

So I take it that the quads/dune buggy things that used to go from down at the Caleta end of the waterfront path to Costa Antigua will not now be allowed ??

Hard to say. I believe these 10 routes are all dirt tracks and the one between Caleta and Costa Antigua is an actual road. I guess they still will be allowed to drive on the roads if the vehicles are "legal".

Haven't heard any of those since last summer! Not saying they're not there, but we used to see/hear that tour very regularly, but we haven't spotted or noticed them since we came back after the summer last November.

I've seen some back in December, driving from Caleta and later took the dirt track at the north of Costa Antigua.

As far as I remember they only used the road part way up & then went off road. Will maybe see them, we are out again in a few weeks  Smile

I think you mean the north end Sam.

I was walking past Amuley Mar 2 the other week, and a whole line of buggies drove into the underground garage there.  I presume they are the ones in the picture, and that they are stored under Amuley Mar 2.
