She wanted to use demagogy to insist on her campaign to discredit the PP and VOX, who defeated her in the last regional elections, but it backfired on her. She rained criticism on Francina Armengol on social networks for complaining on Twitter that a zebra crossing is not marked in colors. “Stop endangering our security because of your sectarian ideology”, is one of the mildest comments that the former president of the Balearic Government has received for an unfortunate message in which she demonstrated her absolute ignorance regarding the basic rules of the DGT.
“They want to literally go back to black and white. And the Balearic Islands are colorful, plural and diverse. They will find us on the street, in the institutions, and we will overcome these four years of extreme right ». “No step back, Balearic Islands,” Armengol wrote this afternoon on his Twitter account, accompanying the message with two images. One of the dismissal of the local police officer who published the LGTBI flag on social networks, although that was not the reason for his dismissal, but the indignation that he aroused among Mallorcan society by asking them not to use the car to give precedence to tourists, and another of the removal of the LGTBI colors from a zebra crossing in Calvià, a municipality now governed by PP and VOX.

They will meet us in the streets, in the institutions and we will overcome these 4 years of extreme right.

The reaction of the networks has been absolutely overwhelming and has exposed the new socialist deputy in Congress, who was not slow to remind her of the regulation of the General Directorate of Traffic on pedestrian crossings, in which she leaves very Of course, the lines can only be painted in white.
Zebra crossings, according to the DGT, must be white for safety, to stand out from the asphalt material on the road.

From there, the responses have been devastating for Armengol: «Traffic signs have a function and an imperative need to be as visible as possible. They are not a support for ideologies, it is not very difficult to understand”, wrote @Lostin_Palma, while @littlemoix reminded him that “let’s see, Francina, the institutions are there to manage public money, not to vomit ideology or to deface all the furniture. Crosswalks are white for a reason: to make them visible and safe. Don’t tangle.”
The rejection of Armengol’s tweet has been so strong that the former president has been silent ever since. Today she has collected her deputy act and has collected it in another message that has also caused a lot of rejection. «You have never defended the interests of the Balearic Islands, only yours and those of the PSOE. You go to Madrid because every day a new pufo of yours is discovered on the islands », she has blamed her @rosselloarom.
