Breathalyzers: Morocco strengthens control of motorists

The police have decided to reinforce breathalyzer tests in the coming days to reduce traffic accidents, one of the main causes of which is alcohol consumption.

In the event of a check, the driver will be asked to blow into a breathalyzer. If the level of alcohol exhaled in the air exceeds 0.10 mg per liter, the agent will require him to breathe in an alcohol meter to measure the alcohol content in the blood.

The traffic police in Morocco are currently in training to know the proper behavior to adopt against the driver in case of control and learn to establish a trial against all those caught in the act of driving in state of drunkenness.

The mis en cause may therefore six months imprisonment, a fine that can reach 10,000 MAD and the withdrawal of the driver’s license for a period of six months to a year. The fine and the other penalties are doubled in case of recidivism.
