“Tráfico has taken advantage of the Día Mundial sin Alcohol (World No Alcohol Day) to remind drivers that alcohol is the cause of 26% of all fatal road traffic accidents. Tráfico says, simply, “if you drink, don’t drive”, and links the advice with a new campaign this year entitled “In a fatal accident, who would you prefer to be? The survivor or the victim?” The video accompanying the campaign, which I’ve posted below, is very hard-hitting, and suggests very strongly that the question is not an easy one to answer since the survivor might be facing a living death.
To be clear on the rules, the idea that there is a zero alcohol limit for drivers in Spain is actually mistaken, but the limits are very strict indeed, being 0.5 grams of alcohol per litre of blood = 0.25 mg per litre of exhaled air (slightly stricter for “professional” and newly-qualified drivers – 0.3g/l). As a general guide, two small glasses of wine or one small can of beer reaches the limit for a man of average build and weighing around 12 stone.”
