ZUR NOTWENDIGKEIT NEUER MASSNAHMEN GEGEN DIE TRUNKENHEIT IM STRASSENVERKEHR

THE AUTHORS SHOW BY MEANS OF STATISTICAL DATA AND VARIOUS RESEARCH RESULTS THAT LEGAL MEASURES FOR INFLUENCING DRUNKENNESS ARE LARGELY INEFFECTIVE. FROM KNOWLEDGE GAINED FROM LEARNING PROCESSES A MODEL IS DEVELOPED TO EXPLAIN THE LACK OF EFFECTIVENESS OF EXISTING MEASURES. IT APPEARS NECESSARY AND SENSIBLE, IN ORDER TO COMPLEMENT EXISTING MEASURES, TO APPLY PSYCHOLOGICAL MEASURES IN ORDER TO CHANGE ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOUR FOR ALCOHOL PRONE DRIVERS. THE POSSIBILITY OF PROSECUTION OF DRUNKEN OFFENDERS AS A SPECIFIC CLASS MUST BE FOLLOWED UP.
