Drinking and driving still prevalent in Murcia


THE numerous campaigns launched by the Spanish National Traffic Authorities (DGT) raising awareness on the risks of drinking and driving do not seem to have had much impact on Murcia drivers. 

The most recent official data shows that 2,254 drivers were convicted last year in the province for driving after having drunk alcohol or consumed drugs. 

These accounted for 63.2 per cent of the 3,600 total sentences issued by judges for traffic-related offences.
