Drunk drivers to be punished without trial in Portugal

Post by Pedro Silva on Mon Apr 02, 2012 11:38 pm

Drunk drivers to be punished without trial.

Pinto Monteiro gave instructions to 'negotiate' sanctions and standardize procedures. There are counties that already do, as in Montijo or Angra do Heroísmo.

PGR wants drivers with alcohol to be punished without going to trial. Pinto Monteiro ordered the prosecutor to chose, for example, community work. The attorney general's office wants to end with the crimes trials about driving while intoxicated. Pinto Monteiro sent a circular to all the prosecutors ordered the prosecutors that instead of judgment, to chose for the temporary suspension of the process, proposing to the defendant, for example, work community, monetary donation or attend a training action. In 2011 there were 23,274 cases of driving under the influence of alcohol - increase 5.5% to about 2010 (22,067). This crime is fifth in the ranking of most recorded by the police.

Catkins, the police carries breathalysers, that´s how the police knows if the driver is drunk or not, if the percentage of alcohol, is bigger than 0.5 g / l, the driver caught with this can be prohibited of driving for a huge amount of time. The maximum alcohol level permitted by the rules of the road code in Portugal is 0.5 g / l.

Catkins the fines in Portugal for someone who is caught driving with alcohol is 500 euros, the registration of the vehicle or everything related with the vehicle, is aprehended in the place where the driver was caught.
