Brno, Sep 30 (BD) – 80 officers from the South Moravian Police were out on Monday morning performing routine breathalyzer checks on drivers around Brno-Venkov. 600 vehicles were stopped for tests, with a focus on bus drivers. Three drunk drivers were caught in total, including two bus drivers.
A 54-year-old bus driver in Letovice was found with an alcohol reading of 0.29 per mille, and his colleague in Rajhrad had 0.16 per mille.
The Czech Republic has zero tolerance to driving under the influence, unlike most European countries. Both men admitted they had underestimated their Sunday drinking.
