Under a new ordinance recently adopted by the city of Gibraltar, people convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol could be forced to reimburse the city for money spent on the incident.
The money obtained under the ordinance would be used to help the city recuperate some of the losses it incurs from alcohol and drug related emergencies. These losses include costs for paying police officers and firefighters their normal wages, as well as overtime wages, and the cost of medical supplies and court personnel.
The ordinance, which affects drivers of cars, boats and snowmobiles, was unanimously adopted by the city council on March 22.
