DRUNKEN drivers are being targeted by police in Spain.

The National Police kept a keen eye on the roads throughout Spain over the weekend.

The General Director of Traffic (DGT) had previously estimated that 7.8 million long haul journeys would take place before Sunday evening.


The authorities were looking out for drunk drivers over the long holiday weekend. There were more speed cameras in operation, more surveillance cameras (some attached to helicopters) and more control check-points to make sure reckless driving is prosecuted.

The DGT also issued certain diversions due to the increase in traffic flow so roads such as the CV-715 near Les Fonts de l’Algar would not suffer long delays. They also opened new lanes so some main roads were littered with cones and temporary routes.
