Evaluation of the reoffending scheme for serious traffic offences

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

As of 1 June 2011, drivers may also be subject to the reoffending scheme for serious traffic offences (hereafter referred to as the reoffending scheme) in addition to the criminal law sanctions (such as disqualification from driving a motor vehicle, a fine, a community punishment order or a prison sentence) and the administrative measures (the alcohol and traffic education measure, the alcohol ignition interlock programme and the fitness to drive examination). In brief, the reoffending scheme involves the driving licence becoming legally invalidated if the holder is convicted without appeal for drunk driving twice within five years, with a blood alcohol content of more than 1.3 grams per litre being measured the second time. The objective of this study is to obtain insights into the extent to which the reoffending scheme helps achieve the goals of this scheme in the manner intended by the legislative authority and to obtain information on any problems that arise in practice.
