Who would find this Service useful?

In Turkey, drink-driving offences are regulated under the Road Traffic Law No. 2918.
The regulations set strict limits for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and specify penalties for those found driving under the influence of alcohol:
- For private vehicle drivers, the BAC limit is 0.5 promille (grams per liter).
- For commercial vehicle drivers, drivers of public transportation, and drivers of vehicles transporting hazardous materials, the limit is 0.0 promille, meaning any detectable alcohol in the bloodstream is punishable.
The penalties for drink-driving in Turkey depend on the BAC level and whether the offender has previous convictions. Penalties include fines, imprisonment, and suspension or revocation of the driver's licence. Specifically:
- First Offence with a BAC between 0.5 and 1.0 promille: Penalties may include a fine and a driving licence suspension for a period.
- First Offence with a BAC above 1.0 promille: The penalties are more severe, including a higher fine, potential imprisonment, and a longer period of driving licence suspension.
- Repeated Offences: If a driver commits a drink-driving offence within 5 years of a previous violation, the penalties increase significantly, with higher fines, possible imprisonment, and longer suspension or revocation of the driver's licence.
- Refusal to undergo a breathalyser test or a blood test is treated as a serious offence, with penalties similar to those for high BAC levels.
