Orihuela Police Clamp Down on Drugged Up Drivers
Orihuela police checks on drugged-drivers yielded 17 people driving at two check points on the coast and in Orihuela city on a training day for officers.
The points had been introduced to help the local police through the training process of detecting motorists who are driving when they shouldn’t be, and they produced a high number of offenders. Such has been the level of drug-driving that the Orihuela police are planning to make such random stop and checks more permanent.
The stops were also used to make sure that drivers had all their appropriate insurance and ITV information, and they had the bonus of yielding a Kosovan man wanted on an international arrest warrant.
