If your blood level alcohol content is 0.2 mg/ml or the content of alcohol in your exhaled breath is 0.10 mg/l or more you are in big trouble. Big trouble in this case is one year of jail time with hard labor (the same as Finland).

Speed limits signs are posted everywhere and are easy to read. They are a yellow disc in a red border and the numbers are in black.

Use extra caution when traveling around sunset or dawn. There are many animals in Sweden and they don't want you to hit them.
