THE binge drinking that can be seen on public roads in Majorca, especially on Palma's Paseo Maritimo during most weekends, is not being tackled as it should be, say the socialist party (PSOE), who think that the Palma city council are being “cowardly” and “have no intention” to seriously regulate alcohol consumption in Majorca.

The socialist party are accusing the Palma city council of being “cowardly” with “no intention” of enforcing a law against binge drinking on public roads..

This is in spite of the commitment it made to the opposition parties in order to regulate the consumption of alcohol on public roads, particularly among young people.

This accusation was made in a communique by the socialist councillor Virginia Abraham, who was informed by the Head of Health, Marina Sans, that the council would not be approving the ban, due to a lack of complete consensus with the rest of the groups.

All these projects are agreed by the Government with “absolute majority and do not include consensus from the minority groups,” she said.
Abraham attributes this decision to the council “not seriously wanting to regulate alcohol consumption.” The problem of binge drinking, known as the botellon in Spanish, has been causing concern.
In addition to the problem of drunk and disorderly behaviour, the streets are left full of litter and empty bottles, causing more work for the municipal cleaning brigades.
