A lot of fans of the Spanish football club Real Betis rubbed their eyes when they saw the centre line in the Benito Villamarín stadium in Seville before the game against Eibar. The straight line was recreated in a wavy line, and surely a supporter would have wondered whether he was cross-eyed or not.

It was not a vandal region, but a campaign against drunken driving, in which the zigzagging line refers to the effect of drunkenness on people. The curved line turned out to lie on a strip of fake grass, which was removed by employees for closing.

26 percent of people who died in traffic in Spain last year had drunk too much. Nearly three-fourths of those victims had at least three times more alcohol in their blood than the permitted amount.
