Drink driving limit consultation published
The Scottish Government today published proposals seeking views on lowering the drink driving limit in Scotland.
The consultation follows the recent transfer of the power to set the level of the drink drive limit from Westminster to the Scottish Parliament. It seeks views on reducing the existing blood / alcohol limit of 80mg / 100ml to 50 mg / 100ml.
Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said, “This Government has made it clear that we want a lower drink driving limit as we believe it will help make Scotland’s roads safer. While drink driving is now rightly recognised by the vast majority of motorists as dangerous and reckless, too many drivers still ignore the warnings and put lives at risk by drinking and driving”
