The busy motorway, which runs through Malaga to the major tourist resorts of Marbella and Estepona further south, is one of Spain’s most dangerous roads. 

In total, there were 28 deaths on the roads of Malaga last year, seven more than in 2019 despite the travel restrictions put in place for the COVID-19 pandemic.

This figure also shows a dramatic increase since 2018, when 19 deaths were recorded, however is significantly less than 2017 when figures spiked at 37.

Andalucia as a whole recorded 184 total fatalities of traffic accidents, 13 less than in 2019.
