Finland: overwhelming majority support in-car technology to prevent drink driving

  • December 2, 2017

A survey carried out for ETSC’s Finnish member Liikenneturva has found that nine out of ten Finns have a positive view of in-car technology that can prevent drink driving such as alcohol interlocks.

Finland has had a nationwide rehabilitation programme for drink drivers, coupled with the use of alcohol interlocks fitted in offenders’ vehicles since 2008. A 2013 evaluation found the effects on participants to be positive and that the programme has prevented 12,000 instances of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The poll also found that three quarters of Finns would be willing to inform the police about a relative or friend’s drink driving while 90% would be willing to report a stranger.
