Effectiveness and Impact of Alcohol Inter-lock-controlled Driving Rights

In Finland, alcohol interlock-controlled driving rights were taken into permanent use on 1 July 2008, based on the positive experiences gained during a three-year trial. This study investigated the effectiveness and impact of alcohol interlock-controlled driving rights. The materials for the study consisted of a survey sent to all drivers who chose alcohol interlock-controlled driving rights, email surveys sent to police departments, district courts and alcohol interlock importers, as well as interviews of health care representatives and drivers. In addition, the driving rights, traffic violation data and causes of death of persons with alcohol interlock-controlled driving rights registered in the Traffic Information System, as well as the log data decoded from the alcohol interlocks of a single manufacturer were analysed in the study, and a review of other European countries' alcohol interlock practices regarding drivers guilty of driving while intoxicated was drawn up.
