Breathalyzer Blitz on Belgian roads

Belgian police are staging a clamp down on drunk driving this weekend and will be carrying out countless extra tests. Beware if you venture out on Belgian roads this weekend you stand a good chance of being breathalysed!  The so called breathalyzer Marathon runs until Monday 6AM.

Federal and local police are joining forces in numerous localities with a view to checking motorists for their blood alcohol content.  The blitz is intended to encourage drivers to seek alternative modes of transports if they are drinking alcohol.  It forms part of a summer of checks to warn drivers against excessive alcohol consumption when Belgium plays at the World Cup or if they are attending music festivals.  You can enjoy both football and music without drinking to excess!
