Calls to tackle urban bus assaults in Almeria


THE Independent Trade Union and Officials Centre in Almerao (CSIF-A) has demanded an urgent government response to bus attacks in Almeria.

The union has said that in the last six months alone, more than a hundred aggressive incidents have taken place including stone throwing at passing vehicles in Almeria.

Damage to date has included broken window panes potentially risking a collision and crash at a busy time of year.

Incidents in the last ten days have occurred on the motorway from Almeria to the city’s airport.

CSIF note that aggression against drivers and vehicles often peaks in summer months, with an increased number of users, as well as longer nights, being factors in the rise incidents.

The union is calling on local and governmental authorities, including the national police, to take immediate action in urban areas to protect workers and users.
