A Busy Night | Costa Tropical Gazette News

Posted on

Last Friday was a busy day for dealing with drink drivers in the city of Granada, as they had to deal with four within 24 hours.

The first incident was when a 52-year-old driver smacked into a traffic light and metal bollard on the Circunvalación de la Encina. He was breathalysed and found to have 1.13mg/l; high enough to be considered a criminal offense.

Then, at 01.30h there was another road accident but this time on the Europa Roundabout. The 49-year-old driver collided with a barrier fence. The Guardia Civil went to the scene of the accident and breathalyse him. He gave a reading of 0.82 mg/l, which was less than the other driver but still a criminal offense.

Then at 04.30h there was an accident on Young Marcelo Street; a 30-year-old female driver, this time, had collided with a line of parked cars but decided to accelerate away. However she was soon tracked down and breathalysed, giving a reading of 0.79 mg/l, which even though lower than the other two, she was still three times over the limit.

Finally, the Policía Local intercepted a motorbike rider showing evident signs of being drunk. The rider refused to take a breathalyser test, so he was charged with refusing to take a test and drink driving.

Amazingly, nobody was injured that evening or latter in the early morning.
