During a week long police checks in 30 European countries, the police found many drunk drivers. Way too many. The cops conducted 1,168,631 alcohol tests during 2 and 8 June, and 18,391 drivers (and we also presume motorcycle riders) were caught drinking and driving.

Additionally, 2,976 were caught drugged. The cops have a warning for motorists: "Driving under the influence of drugs, even those prescribed by a doctor, is an offence. We urge drivers to take seriously any drowsiness warnings on the medications they may be using, because driving under the influence of drugs, even those prescribed by a doctor, is very dangerous. That’s why it is treated as a serious offence by police officers and courts across Europe".

Good Party Proof

While conducting the spot checks, the police officers also found 97 illegal immigration and human trafficking, 580 drug related crimes, 54 firearms crimes, 240 wanted persons and 2,284 other crimes.

Not a bad haul. Looks like some cops made their numbers.
