Safe and Sober Webinar
An overview of current and forthcoming alcohol interlock programmes in Europe
Online event : Monday 7 December 2020, 15:30 – 16:45
The European Transport Safety Council is pleased to invite you to a Safe and Sober webinar on 7 December. This online event will feature the launch of our new report on alcohol interlock programmes in Europe and national experts from Belgium, Finland, France and Sweden will be sharing their experiences.
Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the four main killers on the road, alongside speeding, non-use of seatbelts and driver distraction. Impairment through alcohol is an important factor influencing both the risk of a collision as well as the severity of the injuries that result from collisions.
Across Europe, there is still a group of hard-core drink driving offenders that seem unwilling or unable to change their behaviour despite the use of traditional countermeasures such as awareness campaigns, fines and driving bans. Studies have repeatedly shown that alcohol interlock programmes, combined with rehabilitation programmes, cut reoffending rates both during and after the driver has installed the device in their vehicle.
To better understand some of the technology aspects of fitting alcohol interlocks, the Convenor of the CENELEC Standards committee for alcohol interlocks will join the discussion and present the evolution and future vision.
