4,000 drunk or drugged drivers caught last year in Balearics

ALMOST 4,000 people were caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in the Balearic Islands in 2014.

The data was released by the National Traffic Department of Spain (DGT), who pointed out that the results were above the national average.

“We have no interest on sanctioning more or collecting more money, but instead, we want the traffic rules to be followed and have safe roads, which meant prioritising prevention,” said delegate of the DGT in the Balearics, Maria Teresa Suau.

Since the point-system licence was implemented in 2006, more than 2,000 people in the islands have lost their permit to drive due to infractions, with three out of four being men.
