One for the Road

A drunk British driver made it easy pickings for the San Miguel de Salinas local police when his vehicle ploughed through cones and signs that the cops had put up at a control point on Avenida del Nido in the town. The 69 year old identified as TWR, was spotted heading from the Orihuela Costa at around one-thirty in the morning last week with the police car signalling for him to stop. The driver instead drove through a set of markers erected at the site and claimed that he did not see the warning lights that had been switched on by the police. The man was nearly twice the drink-drive limit, with the officers at the scene saying that he had great difficulty in answering their questions as he was “under the influence of alcohol” and his speech was slurred and stuttering.
