Aquests controls intensius to monitor the use of belts, helmets and child restraint systems (SRI) to the highways and roads of Catalonia is a fan periodically with the aim of reducing the victims of traffic accidents and remembering the importance of fer to serve aquests dispositius i de fer-ho correctly.
