More drivers over the limit in Switzerland says survey

National News // By Tay Kinnear // Aug. 13, 2019

A European survey run by the Swiss media group Tamedia seems to show Swiss drivers are more likely to get behind the wheel while over the alcohol limit or speed than other Europeans – or maybe just more honest while answering surveys.

Over 1,000 drivers were asked the question if they had driven over the limit in the last 30 days - almost 22% said they had. The European average is 13%.

Another question if they’d broken the speed limit, 76% said yes in the last month – on the rest of the continent 60% say they had.

Although the results could be described as shocking – the Federal Office for Accident Prevention says the number of serious accidents and deaths on the roads has been steadily declining for years.
