Alco Gates in Sweden

Sweden was one of the first EU member states to introduce alcohol interlocks as part of rehabilitation programmes for drink drivers in 1999. In 2013, Sweden went a step further and ran a pilot project to introduce a fast-moving automated ‘Alco Gate’ at the Port of Gothenburg. A briefing paper has been published that explores the background to the project and its results, which the authors argue could have positive future implications for drink driving policy in Sweden and across Europe. factsheet_alco_gate_sweden.pdf
