Drivers who caught drink-driving are required to submit a psychiatric analysis to reapply. Health insurance does not cover these tests.

The fees have been dropped to €78 for 15 minutes and €39 for additional 15 minutes.

According to a spokesman, some people who were out five minutes were charged €250.

However, the new tariff system is rejected by a large number of psychiatrists, saying the new rates are not reasonable.
