Pablo Martínez Carignano, head of Argentina’s National Road Safety Agency, condemned Arostegui’s erratic behavior that may have resulted in multiple deaths or serious injuries had he collided with other motorists.

‘The images speak for themselves. Alcohol at the wheel is deadly, in part because driving under the influence creates a sense of false safety and loss of braking that makes it possible to make decisions, such as driving at a high speed without estimating the danger,” said Martínez Carignano in a statement. .

“Fortunately there were no deaths to mourn today, but it is imperative that all motorists understand that driving is a responsibility, that traffic rules must be respected and that alcohol should not be consumed before driving.”
