THE UNIFICATION OF THE BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT REGULATIONS - FOR AND AGAINST

ZUR VEREINHEITLICHUNG DER PROMILLEGRENZEN - PRO UND CONTRA

THE AUTHOR REPORTS ON THE BASIS OF THE FEDERAL PROPOSALS (AGAINST THE USE OF ALCOHOL IN ROAD TRAFFIC) FOR THE UNIFICATION OF THE VARIOUS BLOOD ALCOHOL LIMITS VALID IN THE FEDERAL GERMAN REPUBLIC. IT IS STRESSED THAT IT IS MUCH MORE A QUESTION OF TRAFFIC POLICY THAN A SCIENTIFIC PROBLEM. IT IS NOT OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE IF CASES CONCERNING BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENTS OF LESS THAN 60 P.M. ARE NOT PENALIZED. OBVIOUSLY, THE MAIN REQUIREMENT IS VOLUNTARY ABSTINENCE FROM ALCOHOL FOR A PERIOD BEFORE COMMENCING A JOURNEY. THE AUTHOR REPORTS FURTHER ON THE UNDERSTANDING WHICH THE PROPOSALS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAVE MET WITH FROM THE POLITICAL PARTIES, THE AUTOMOBILE CLUBS AND SCIENTIFIC CIRCLES. FURTHERMORE, A FORMULATION IS SOUGHT WHICH WILL ALLOW THE PROPOSALS TO BE MADE LAW AND THE HOPE IS EXPRESSED THAT THE DISCUSSIONS WILL NOT BREAK DOWN.
