recommendations

The Local Police of Totana reminds all drivers and users of the roads that alcohol is present as a concurrent or triggering factor in one third of fatal accidents.

Its presence in driving, depending on its rate, multiplies between 2 and 15 the risk of suffering an accident;

and that the only safe rate is 0.0%.

In addition, it is reported that not only is it related to greater accidents, but it also has an impact on increased mortality, as it is a factor linked to a worse prognosis in the injuries suffered.
