A problem for the authorities is that some offenders are insolvent; fines aren't imposed. | Pere Morell
Problems in Playa de Palma have been a theme of the summer. Part of this resort area is subject to the provisions of the tourism of excesses law, but much of the excess isn't covered by this law. Anti-social behaviour is a municipal matter, Playa de Palma having been classified - for security purposes - as a zone of special tourist interest. In other words, there are specific policing measures designed to tackle this behaviour. These were in place well before the law was passed, a law which predominantly concerns itself with business activities.
