SPN Guardia Civil BikersAn Almuñécar lorry driver was caught in Murcia drink driving five times over the limit for commercial drivers.

The 56-year-old man was at the wheel of a 40-tonne, articulated lorry, weaving from one lane to the other on the RM-714 (Jumilla-Caravaca).

After receiving several calls from other road users on Sunday the Guardia Civil despatched a patrol car to intercept him, which they did on at a junction on the municipal boundary with Cieza..

The police found that the man appeared to be “under the influence of a substance incompatible with driving,” so they called in a nearby motorbike unit to breathalyse him.
His reading was 0.76 mg per litre of air expelled whereas the limit is 0.15mg/litre.

Consequently, the lorry carrying subtropical fruit was left parked up on a lay-by until the next morning when the driver was sober enough to drive it.

Finally, it appears that it was not the first time that this driver was caught drink-driving.
