The Municipality of Teguise that is responsible for La Graciosa this week demanded that the Government of the Canary Islands provides a vehicle inspection centre or ITV centre on this eighth Canary Island.
Although the city council of Teguise limits and restricts vehicle traffic on La Graciosa, it is estimated that there are around 300 cars on the island, and this relates to almost one vehicle for every two inhabitants.
It is also reported that currently only 50 cars have completed the regular ITV vehicle inspection checks.
The City Council of Teguise has instructed Alicia Paez, Minister responsible for La Graciosa, to demand that the Government of the Canary Islands open an ITV centre in Caleta de Sebo on this island to “respond to the growing need of many vehicle owners to pass the inspection on their own island.”
The Mayor of Teguise, Oswaldo Betancort said “This is unfair treatment given to the residents of our eighth island, which does not have the legal status of challenge, but the residents are subject to fines for not having an ITV certificate.”
