breathalyserThe Guardia Civil, with their breathalyser units, are out in force in a bid to clamp down on drinking and driving in the run up to Christmas.

The new campaign runs until 21st December. We can expect road blocks throughout the day as well as night, as their aim is also to clamp down on those driving home from office parties.

This year alone, in the Canary Islands, over 450 people have lost their driving licences, and the total number of banned drivers since the introduction of the point system in July 2006 is over 800.
