“Driving under the influence of alcohol showed a significant increase (+69.3%), but largely as a result of the sharp drop in the previous year”, says the report by the National Road Safety Authority (ANSR) on 24-hour accident rates.

According to the ANSR, during the first six months of the year, 15,412 drivers were fined for driving under the influence of alcohol, while in the same period of 2021, 9,103 infractions were recorded.

Driving under the influence of alcohol is the only offense to register an increase in the first half of the year.
