Road Safety Strategy 2011/2020 provides for the key issue of alcohol and drugs in order to lower the 1% positive for alcohol in randomized preventive controls, target achieved in the Region of Murcia in June last season.
In 33% of injury accidents occurred on the way to Murcia in 2014, alcohol was present as a contributory factor or trigger.
The intake of alcohol and drugs is not only associated with a higher accident rate, but also results in greater mortality.
Next to the town of Totana, they have also joined this campaign Sewer, Alguazas, Beniel, Cartagena, Cehegín, La Union, Mazarrón, Molina de Segura, Moratalla, Murcia, Puerto Lumbreras, San Javier, San Pedro del Pinatar, Santomera and Yecla.
For the full year 2014 in the region 189 431 tests were conducted, resulting in 2,863 positive, representing 1.51% of the total.
As usual in campaigns carried out by the DGT, the cooperation of the local police in Murcia is very important, since alcohol and drug controls are carried out in both urban and intercity roads and not just night, but also during the day.
