Twice caught with too much alcohol, means you lose your driver’s license

Police_alcoholWILLEMSTAD - Drunk drivers run the risk that their driver's license will be taken from them. That is according to Norman Serphos of the Public Prosecution. Yesterday three people were sentenced to fines for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Their driver’s licenses were not taken, but if they are caught again with too much alcohol behind the wheel, it will be then taken.

A few months ago the police started testing for alcohol abuse in collaboration with the Dutch Royal Police, the Marechaussee. Serphos emphasizes that this is one of the spearheads of the public prosecutor and that more checks will follow. More will also be checked for child seats and belts, for example.
