A judge in Granada said last week that drink-driving controls are “illegal and illegitimate”, represented an “obsessive persecution mania” against drivers and were a “serious violation of the principle of the right to equal treatment before the law”. He then proceeded to absolve a man brought before him for failing a breathalyser test. The judge based his remarks on the fact that someone caught driving under the influence of drugs can get off scot free. Although it was a so-called “fast trial” – one that normally doesn’t last more than 15 minutes – it took the judge six type-written pages to expound his theory.
