Enhanced police controls

As every year during the Carnival period, the Luxembourg police announce reinforced blood alcohol tests. To avoid any nasty surprises, here are some tips:

  • If you go out in a group, appoint a driver who will not drink alcohol.
  • If you have all decided to have a drink, leave the car at home and use a taxi.
  • If you take the wheel, ask about the weather conditions (ice, snowfall, ...)
