Rattfylla (Drink-driving)

In Sweden the limit for drink driving is 0.02 per cent blood alcohol content (0.1 mg per litre in exhaled breath). This means that, in practice, it is safest not to drink anything containing alcohol if you are going to drive a car. Aggravated drink-driving means having a blood alcohol content of 0.1 per cent (0.1 mg per litre in exhaled breath) or more, and the penalty is imprisonment for up to two years.
