Latvia introduced a progressive approach to combat drunk driving by enabling police to seize vehicles from offenders whose blood alcohol concentration exceeds the legal limit by three times. This initiative led to the impoundment of over 200 cars within the first two months after the law's implementation, signifying its effectiveness in tackling this issue. Subsequently, faced with a surplus of confiscated vehicles, Latvian authorities opted to donate these cars to Ukraine, a move that has proven to be beneficial in assisting Ukraine's armed forces.

The donated vehicles are channeled to Ukraine through Agendum, a non-profit organization that facilitates the transportation of these cars from Latvia. Once in Ukraine, these cars are repurposed for crucial functions such as transporting the injured as ambulances, supporting military activities on the front lines, and aiding in general logistics. Agendum's founder, Reinis Poznaks, highlighted that they deliver an average of 30 to 40 cars to Ukraine every weekend, essential in addressing the urgent need for specific types of vehicles like 4x4 off-road capable trucks and refrigerated trucks for various military operations.

Individuals volunteer to drive these donated vehicles to Ukraine twice a week, covering extensive distances of up to 1,200 miles, demonstrating dedication to supporting Ukraine's troops. The then Prime Minister of Latvia, Krišjānis Kariņš, previously elaborated on the government's rationale behind the decision to donate the impounded cars to Ukraine during an interview with European Pravda. This innovative initiative not only addresses the issue of drunk driving but also showcases the spirit of solidarity between Latvia and Ukraine, with each donated vehicle having the potential to make a significant impact by potentially saving dozens of lives in the region.
