ETSC Drink - drive monitor now available

8 January 2011

The 12th European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) newsletter on drink driving policy – Drink Driving Monitor – brings news from across the EU on steps to improve drink driving legislation and enforcement.

In Belgium a regulation introducing the use of alcolocks for the rehabilitation of all drink driving first high-level offenders and recidivist drivers has been applicable under law since December 2010.

The political agreement on Cross Border Enforcement Directive and its relevance to tackling drink driving is presented, together with new legislation to tackle drinking and driving in Italy, and the latest Parliament approval on alcolock rehabilitation programmes for drink driving offenders in Belgium and Sweden.

Updates on European campaigns against alcohol on the roads and the ETSC alcolock legislation barometer are also included.
