Traffic police will be out on the roads tomorrow for an islandwide campaign targeting driving under the influence of alcohol.

The two week long campaign, which starts on Monday, June 3 and continues until June 16, aims to raise awareness and reduce the number of traffic accidents.

Drunk driving is the second  most common factor in road fatalities, accounting for 22.27% of the total number of people killed on the island’s roads in the period 2014 to 2018.

The first week of the campaign is being held at the same time as a similar campaign in other  countries members of TISPOL — the European Traffic Police Network.
