ROWDY revelers in Malaga are to be controlled with a brand new ‘traffic light’ system.

Flashing signs will show a green light when noise levels are acceptable outside bars in the capital.

But they will light up red with the word ‘silencio’ when things get too loud.

Six bars around Malaga have volunteered to have the signs installed for a month-long trial, to make the public aware of how noisy they can be.

But the city’s environment councillor, Raul Jimenez, pointed out that no business will be punished if the red light appears, because it would not be covered by local by-laws.
