[The promille limit and reduced responsibility].Blutalkohol. 1989 Jan; 26(1):1-6.B
In a review the author agrees with the German Federal Court's judgement of 9.8.88 (see Blutalkohol 25,403). He deals with the relation between physiological and psychological circumstantial evidences (blood-alcohol-concentration and condition of personality in the time of violation) and with their reference to the ascertainment of reduced responsibility. In accordance with the Federal Court he states that within the necessary total assessment the importance of blood-alcohol-concentration is the lower the more the BAC-level figured out is remote from the probable BAC in the time of violation because of the long period of time between. He concludes that the Federal Court was successful in it's attempt to draw the juridical arguments near to those of forensic medicine.
