Recidivism after an Educational Measure Alcohol and traffic or during an Alcohol Interlock programme

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The Netherlands has several behavioural measures that can be issued for road traf-fic offences. The aim of these is to improve road safety and reduce the number of road traffic accident victims. In 2008, two versions of the Educational Measure Alcohol and traffic were introduced. The goal of these measures is to teach traffic offenders about the dangers of certain driving behaviour, in order to prevent them from reoffending. Besides these measures, between December 2011 and September 2014 the Alcohol Interlock programme was issued for more serious or repeat drink-driving offenders. This report presents research on the recidivism rates of those who participated in at least one of these measures between 2009 and 2013.
