Every three years, the ‘International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS)’ hands out awards to those individuals or organizations that have made an outstanding contribution in the field of alcohol, drugs and road safety. The Widmark Award is named after the Swedish Professor Erik M.P. Widmark, who developed a method to measure the blood alcohol level.
