All our partners - Working together for safer roads


Following the all-night party on the Orihuela Costa on Wednesday, the Guardia Civil launched a monitoring campaign against drink and drug driving, successfully taking 25 dangerous drivers off the roads.

In total, 20 drivers tested positive for driving under the influence of alcohol, and another 5 were charged with driving having consumed illegal drugs.

With harsher penalties now in place for drink and drug driving, these latest offenders will at least be considerably out of pocket as a result of their actions.
