Croatian Ministry of Interiors has issued new instruction for the enforcement of Traffic Act. According to the instructions, 0,1 pro mille of alcohol in blood are going to be tolerated. The official explanation is in "faulty blood alcohol testing equipment" which is too sensitive and often gives false positive results for the small amounts of alcohol.

In doing this, Sanader's government has found an ingenious way to decrease some of the pressure created by widely unpopular and unenforceable law.

Political necessity or not, Sanader's Prohibition still remains legislative disgrace of modern Croatia. Same government that insisted on harshest possible law has now decided not to implement it.

And nobody is mentioning any resignations over "faulty equipment".
