Abstract [en]

In 2016, the Swedish Transport Administration, commissioned by the government, conducted an investigation to prepare for the introduction of control of sobriety in some ports. The Swedish Transport Administration submitted its report to the Government Offices on 31 January 2017 and proposed that an innovative concept of sobriety controls be developed and implemented in strategically important places in the traffic environment, such as ports, car parks and selected road sections.

In a government mission, Trafikverket is commissioned to develop and implement facilities for automated sobriety checks at strategic locations in the traffic environment

In order to describe the respective roles, responsibilities and forms of cooperation of the authorities in a joint project, an agreement has been signed by the National Police Commissioner and the Director General of the Swedish Transport Administration.

The aim of the project is to create a new method that allows for legal and automated sobriety controls in the road traffic environment. The method must be designed in such a way that it requires a limited presence of police and/or representatives of other supervisory authorities.

The project will investigate technical, legal and organizational conditions for such activities and then develop, procure and implement the new method. The tool/operations can be used at different strategic locations in the road traffic environment such as ports, car parks, border crossings, selected road routes, etc.

The purpose of the new project is to enable regular and resource-efficient sobriety controls, thus increasing sobriety and reducing the number of dead and seriously injured in road traffic

The project is expected to be completed by 31 December 2020.
