A survey of overcrowding in the summer by the Balearic Institute of Social Studies reveals that excessive numbers of cars is the public's main concern. This refers specifically to vehicles in urban areas as opposed to main roads. For the Balearics as a whole, 56% say that this is the biggest problem, while in Mallorca's 'part forana' (everywhere but Palma), 55% identify this. In Palma, the percentage drops to 43%.
