The chief of Pernik's road administration was caught drunk driving this weekend. By his own admission Petar Basmandzhiev had had three rakiyas before taking the wheel. Patrol officers stopped his car at 3:30 AM for a regular check. Basmandzhiev registered 1,66 blood level alcohol. The law allows for a sentence of between one and three years in prison and a lifetime ban from driving for such an amount.
Basmandzhiev became the chief of road administration in Pernik about a month ago. He is also a City Council member.
The news comes amid an increase of road accidents in the country’s capital and elsewhere over the past weeks. Several days ago, the Ministry of Interior announced it will intensify traffic control measures citing the fatal incidents from last week.
Last Wednesday one child died and another was admitted to hospital with heavy injuries after a car hit them in Sofia. Just one day earlier, on December 12, a National Service for Protection car hit a 14-year-old boy. The child sustained serious injuries. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and in the ICU on Thursday. He has since stabilized.

Did anyone bother to check this article? It is full of mistakes! It is not the chief of the traffic police but the head of Road Administration who got caught drunk-driving! He is also not a GERB party member but a BDS Radicals party member. Come on! Karlovo and California - they are not the same states;) You can do better Julia Rafailovich.
