The scope of operations regulated is tremendously diverse, it includes: passenger transport and road haulage operations, both international and national, long and short distance, drivers for own account and for hire and reward, employees and self-employed.

Driver Check Land Transport

Sobriety checkpoints allow police officers to briefly stop vehicles at specific, highly visible locations to check drivers for impairment. Police officers can stop all or a certain portion of drivers.1 Breath tests can be given if police officers have reason to suspect that a driver is impaired.2 When implemented fully, sobriety checkpoints are well publicized, highly visible, and regularly conducted.1 Just like saturation patrols, the goal of sobriety checkpoints is to increase the perceived likelihood that impaired driving will be identified and penalized, leading to a reduction in impaired driving.1

Sobriety checkpoints were first introduced during the 1930s in Scandinavia and have become popular worldwide, with some countries allowing for all drivers who are stopped to be given a breath test.2 In the 1980s, alcohol-impaired driving gained attention in the United States with the advocacy of citizen organizations, advances in the collection of data about alcohol-involved crashes, and legislative changes.17 Throughout the decade, impaired driving enforcement changed, including the addition of roadside use of hand-held preliminary breath test devices and an increase in sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.17
