REFORM OF THE BLOOD ALCOHOL LIMITS IN TRAFFIC LEGISLATION

ZUR REFORM DER ALKOHOLBESTIMMUNGEN DES VERKEHRSRECHTS

THE CURRENT LEGAL LIMITS FOR BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT OF DRIVERS ARE HELD TO BE UNSATISFACTORY. THE DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN ABSOLUTE INCAPACITY TO DRIVE, RELATIVE INCAPACITY TO DRIVE AND 0.8 PROMILLE DANGER LIMIT, IS CONFUSING FOR THE LAYMAN. THE USE OF A SINGLE LIMIT OF 0.6 PROMILLE AS A JUDICIAL OFFENCE AND NOT AS A SIMPLE RESTRICTION IS RECOMMENDED AND IF NECESSARY, 0.5 PROMILLE. THE QUESTIONS AND CONSIDERATIONS ARISING FROM SUCH A REGULATION ARE DISCUSSED.
