DETERMINATION AND SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PROBABILITY OF RECIDIVISM IN DRUNKEN DRIVING OFFENDERS

ERMITTLUNG UND BEDEUTUNG DER RUECKFALLWAHRSCHEINLICHKEIT BEI TRUNKENHEITSTAETERN IM STRASSENVERKEHR

CONTRARY TO THE OPINION REPRESENTED BY KUNKEL THE RESEARCH CARRIED OUT BY BUIKHUISEN INTO THE PROBABILITY OF RECIDIVISM IN DRUNKEN DRIVING OFFENDERS IN THE NETHERLANDS IS INAPPLICABLE IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY. THIS RESULTS AS MUCH FROM THEORETICAL CONSIDERATIONS AS FROM EMPIRICAL VERIFICATION OF GERMAN MATERIAL. IT SHOWS FURTHER THAT THE EXTENT OF THE RECIDIVISM RATE VARIES WITH THE ACTUAL SAMPLE INVESTIGATED; MEASURES AGAINST DRUNKENNESS AT THE WHEEL AS AN INFLUENCING FACTOR SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN.
