A Guardia Civil, road check-point in Galicia stopped an ambulance and tested the driver for alcohol and drug consumption – he gave a positive reading.
The driver, who was on standby and had nobody aboard, was found to have consumed cocaine and amphetamines.
The vehicle was immediately immobilised until a replacement driver arrived,
The police sent the sample taken from the driver to the laboratory for a second reading which confirmed the first one.
Driving under the influence of drugs automatically results in the loss of six points off a person’s licence and a 1,000-euro fine. In the case of an ambulance driver, it will mostly likely result in the loss of his job
