DRINKING AND DRIVING IN SLOVENIA

Slovenia lies on the southwestern part of the Alps, which is why it is often referred to as the "country on the sunny side of the Alps". Slovenia has a dense road network totaling some 5,177 km, of which only 126 km are motorway, 1,622 km are main roads, 1,209 km are regional roads, and 2,218 km are local roads. With respect to the number of deaths in traffic per 100,000 inhabitants and per 10,000 private cars, for which the mean values for the last ten years were 25.3 and 9.1, respectively, Slovenia is classified into the group of the most dangerous countries in Europe. This paper discusses drinking and driving, alcohol-caused accidents, alcoholometric analysis, characteristics of alcohol-intoxicated drivers, and measures for overcoming traffic traumatism and alcohol problems.
