During 1990-2008 altogether 542 495 drivers were tested. 1241 drunk drivers were caught (blood alcohol concentration, BAC = 0.50 permille) and 3087 drivers had drunk alcohol, but the limit was not exceeded. The commitment of the National Traffic Police to professional work made it possible to achieve reliableresults.
The prevalence of drunk driving has been 0.2 % with only random variations. The prevalence for drivers below the limit began to climb in the early 2000's and peaked at 1.11 % in 2005. The peak was mainly caused by drivers below 0.2 permille.
Men had five times higher risk of driving drunk than women. Risk factors for recidivism were an earlier drunk driving offense, BAC= 1.20permille at the first time of conviction and high levels of alcohol biomarkers. In substance abuse assessment in health care, attention should be paid more effectively to a person's overall life situation. The results strongly support the introduction of obligatory alcolocks at least for recidivists and aggravated drunk drivers.
