The International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS) is an independent nonprofit body whose only goal is to reduce mortality and morbidity brought about by misuse of alcohol and drugs by operators of vehicles in all modes of transportation. To accomplish this goal, the Council sponsors international and regional conferences to collect, disseminate and share essential information among professionals in the fields of law, medicine, public health, economics, law enforcement, public information and education, human factors and public policy.


The Widmark Award was established in 1965 at Indiana University in honor of Professor Erik M. P. Widmark of the University of Lund in Sweden Widmark's comprehensive research work during the first half of this century touched on all the aspects of the pharmacology of alcohol. The Award is the highest honor that ICADTS can confer on individuals and organizations who have made outstanding contributions to our basic knowledge of the effects of alcohol and other mood-altering drugs on traffic safety.
Address of Widmark Award Winners List:

Williams, P.M.; "Analytical and physiological specificity issues in breath alcohol analysis," ALCOHOL, DRUGS, AND TRAFFIC SAFETY, Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety, ICADTSA-T95; (Widmarks used in Wales and British Courts. "In most cases the defendant will claim they had consumed, prior to driving, alcohol only in such quantity as to give rise to a reading not more than half the legal limit, which creates an impossible gap to be accounted for by the alleged interferant." The driver's own account of pre-driving consumption which, as one British judge so aptly put it is "so often the subject of dubious testimony.")
