Drink Driving Policy Network

The aim of this Programme was to contribute to reducing alcohol-related road deaths and injuries through the identification and promotion of best practice in both policy and advocacy.

The Drink Driving Policy Network was committed to ETSC's systemic and evidence-based approach to road safety work and gathered information on European countries' progress in reducing deaths from drink driving crashes.

Under the Drink Driving Policy Network ETSC carried out four specific activities:

1. A High Level Seminar in Brussels, aiming at involving national decision makers, discussing the country's drink driving performance in relation to ongoing policy debates, ensuring a balanced attendance and lively debate, attracting media and creating a momentum to spark further road safety efforts.
The agenda of the High Level Seminar can be found here.
