Fines handed out for drinking in the street

STREET DRINKING: Police crackdown on illegal boozing.

THE town hall and police of Inca have intensified a crackdown on people drinking in the streets and parks of the town.

The measures have been taken after various complaints from local residents of groups of people having parties (botellons) recently. The residents are tired of clearing up the mess after the parties and also the behaviour of the groups, some of which are clearly under age.

In recent days the police have handed out fines reaching a totaling  €1,500 euros in 10 separate cases.

A string of controls have recently been put into place after visiting a number of bars in the town checking that they have the proper licences and are not serving alcohol to under age drinkers.

The police over the next few weeks will be continuing their campaign and including monitoring and controlling noise levels in public areas.

Another initiative to be taken is the control of dogs that are roaming the streets of the town freely and especially a control on owners of dogs that do not clear up their dog’s mess.

Fines will vary from €150 for small offences to €700 for medium or repeat offenders and up to €2,500 for serious offences.
