  • Between now and December 21st the Guardia Civil will be breathalysing more than 200,000 motorists in an effort to further reduce drink-related traffic accidents.

    The slogan chosen for this year's campaign is "Don't let drinkers drive," and is aimed specifically at Christmas office party-goers.

    The General Traffic Department (DGT) estimates that between 30-50% of all motoring fatalaties at this time of year are caused by drunk drivers.

    Maximum penalties for drivers caught with excess alcohol in their system include up to six months in jail, six penalty points and fines of up to ?600 euros.

  • We must also be more aware of our personal security at this time of year.  It's the time of year when pick pockets and bag snatchers make the most of the busy shops to chance their luck.  Each year they seem to catch out the  unaware at Mercadona in Playa Arena.  Ladies make sure your bag is zipped up securely and Gents your pockets are buttoned up.
