Calls to Reduce Drink Drive Limit Continue

Posted in General News on Thursday, February 11th, 2021

The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS) report stated that a lower drink drive limit would have a positive impact on road safety because driving with even a small amount of alcohol in ones system has a detrimental effect on driving. Drivers are currently limited to 80mg of alcohol per 100mg of blood in England and Wales and this law has remained unchanged since 1967. No other country in Europe has a drink driving limit which is above 50mg/100ml. PACTS Executive Director, David Davies commented: “A lower limit is not a magic bullet but government polices to reduce drink driving will lack credibility as long as they avoid this change.”
