The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has published a new report that identifies ways to tackle drink-driving in Europe.

Part of the ETSC’s SMART (Sober Mobility Across Road Transport) project, the report aims to present the wide-ranging approaches used to tackle drink driving in Europe, including legislation (BAC limits, rehabilitation programmes for drink driving offenders), enforcement, technology (alcohol interlocks) campaigns and education.

It highlights that the numbers of deaths attributed to drink-driving cannot currently be compared between countries, as there are large differences in the way in which countries define and record a “road death attributed to drink-driving”. It also estimates that 1.5 – 2 percent of all kilometres travelled in the EU are driven with an illegal Blood Alcohol Concentration.
