GUIDELINES FOR EXPLANATORY AND PUBLICITY MEASURES FOR PREVENTING THE DRIVING OF MOTOR VEHICLES WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL

LEITLINIEN FUER AUFKLAERUNGS- UND WERBEAKTIONEN ZUR VERMEIDUNG DES FUEHRENS VON KRAFTFAHRZEUGEN IN ALKOHOLBEEINFLUSSTEM ZUSTAND

THE EXPERIMENT IS BASED ON RESEARCH CARRIED OUT ON 120 DRIVERS WHO HAVE BEEN RECIDIVISTS ONE OR MORE TIMES AS REGARDS DRUNKEN DRIVING. THE RESEARCH IN QUESTION WAS UNDERTAKEN WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF A STUDY OF THE DRIVING APTITUDE OF DRIVERS. THE DISCUSSION OF CONFLICT SITUATIONS (BETWEEN ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND THE RESULTING ABILITY TO DRIVE) HAS LED TO THE REALISATION THAT A REDUCTION IN JUDGEMENT ABILITY NORMALLY OCCURS AS A RESULT OF UNCONTROLLED ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION. FOR THIS REASON CONSIDERATIONS AGAINST THE DRIVING OF MOTOR VEHICLES AFTER CONSUMING ALCOHOL LOST GROUND. AS IT SEEMS POINTLESS TO DEMAND COMPLETE ABSTENTION FROM ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AT PRESENT, COMPLIANCE WITH CERTAIN "HARD AND FAST RULES" IS RECOMMENDED AS REGARDS THE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL BEFORE STARTING ON A MOTOR CAR JOURNEY (LIMITATION AND CONTROL OF ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION).
