On Tuesday night the prosecutor's office ordered alcohol checks to be carried out on the RN7 in Diekirch.

A total of 438 drivers had to take a breathalyser test between 9.30 PM and 2 AM, even if there were no prior indications that they might have drunk.

In 10 cases the test was positive, the drivers were handed a fine and have to be prepared for juridical consequences. One driving licence was seized on the spot.


Another intoxicated driver was stopped on Rue de l'industrie around 1.15 PM. The man had already been banned from driving, hence the prosecutor ordered the seizure of his car and he was issued with a fine.
