Summary/Abstract: The grave situation in the field of road traffic safety determines the firm intervention of the state in order to prevent and combat effectively, in particular, the acts of drunk driving, which has been confirmed to be one of the main causes of road accidents. In this context, the state established the responsibility for this type of deviant behavior, incriminating the facts of driving the vehicle in a state of alcohol drunkenness with a minimum degree, handing it over a person who is in a state of alcohol drunkenness, at art. 233 the Contravention Code of the Republic of Moldova. A profound analysis of the structure and content of article 233 of the Contravention Code allowed us to form the opinion that the author of the norm was badly inspired, admitted several errors and technical-legislative deficiencies, and neglected the basic requirements that must meet the normative acts, which determined a misinterpretation and misapplication of that rule.
