TISPOL Operation Alcohol & Drugs
TISPOL Operation „Alcohol & Drugs“
Controls against alcohol and drugs in road traffic will be the focus of Europe-wide traffic controls. 28 European countries will participate.
Again and again, driving vehicles under the influence of intoxicating leads to traffic accidents, often with grave consequences.
Especially driving under the influence of drugs is steadily increasing. In many cases, the often young drivers are unaware of the dangers and trivialize their drug use. They don’t consider that their traffic safety can be impaired by drug use in the long term, up to a week or more.
TISPOL has set itself the goal of improving road safety in Europe and sustainably reducing the number of people seriously injured and killed in road traffic. This takes place through concentrated joint weeks of control, as in the coming week.
