A routine breathalyser test on the Spanish party island of Ibiza didn’t go as expected for officers who stopped a van in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The driver wasn’t speeding, nor had he drunk a single drop of alcohol; but he was carrying six half-naked people having sex in the back of the van.
Rather than caution them for public indecency, officers decided to fine each of them €200 ($270) for not wearing their seat belts.
The Swiss couples willingly accepted to pay the penalty there and then, which meant it was reduced by half.
Officers told local daily Diario de Mallorca they’d already apprehended people having sex in a car but never before had they come across anyone doing it in a moving vehicle.
