Drink-driving related deaths have decreased by 90% in Estonia over the last decade, according to a report published by the European Transport Safety Council.

The report, “Progress in Reducing Drink Driving in Europe”, attributes the reduction, in part, to Estonia having the highest level of alcohol roadside breath tests in the European Union (EU) as well as a near zero tolerance (0.2 g/l) Blood Alcohol Content limit for all drivers.

Progress made by other EU countries is also detailed in the report. It reveals that, in 17 out of 26 countries, progress in reducing drink-driving deaths has been faster than overall reductions in other road deaths.
