A new patient insurance system that will cost around 2 million euros to launch should change the situation in the coming years.

These past years, Estonia has been shaken by tragic traffic accidents with casualties and caused by drunken drivers. Thankfully, over a decade the yearly death toll is down from 81 in 2007 to 14 last year. And yet, many may have been avoided.

This summer looks gloomy to the hardened drunk drivers of Estonia. Come July, serial offenders will automatically undergo shock jail time. A death caused while behind the wheel heavily drunk will count as murder regarding years in prison.
