The Alcohol is present as contributory factor or trigger in a third of the fatal accidents . Your presence in driving depending on your rate, multiplies between 2 and 15 the risk of suffering an accident . For that reason, the Local Police of Cartagena will carry out from the 4th to the 10th of June a campaign of surveillance and control of the blood alcohol during driving, in different points of the municipality of Cartagena. 

The person driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be punished with the withdrawal of driving license and imprisonment in your case

The Road Safety Law is very strict regarding the use of narcotics, which is why it prohibits driving with the presence of drugs in the body, although substances that are used under medical prescription and for therapeutic purposes are excluded.

The Criminal Code provides for drivers who circulate under the influence of alcoholic beverages, toxic drugs , narcotics or psychotropic substances, prison terms of three to six months or a fine of six to twelve months or work for the benefit of the community from thirty-one to ninety days, and, in any case, the deprivation of the right to drive motor vehicles and mopeds for longer than one and up to four years.

The Road Safety Law , the General Circulation Regulations and the criminal code establish the regulations applicable to the generic and specific maximum limits of alcohol allowed during driving, where non-compliance with these standards is classified as a serious or very serious offense, withdrawal of the driving license and prison sentence in your case.

The only safe rate is 0.0%. Not only is it related to greater accidents, but it also has an impact on increased mortality, as it is a factor linked to a worse prognosis in the injuries suffered.
