Samenvatting 2.104 drivers suspected of DUI recruited from different geographical regions of Sweden and a control group of 785 drivers not suspected of DUI responded to the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT). Alcohol problems according to the AUDIT was four times as common among the male and female suspected DUIs detected in general traffic controls as compared to the control drivers. Most interesting was the observation that almost half (46%) of the suspects with a BAC below the Swedish legal limit of 0.02% were found to have alcohol problems this is almost the same prevalence as among those with a BAC of 0.02-0.099%. Drivers detected during the afternoon-hours had both the highest BAC and the highest prevalence of drinking problems. Alcohol problems among middle-aged female drivers suspected of DUI were particularly severe. Regional differences in BAC and prevalence of alcohol problem were found.
