“Alex Attwood Wants Tougher Drink Driving Laws” as reported on the BBC News website 26 September 2011, states Northern Ireland’s intention to lower the current drink drive limit from 80 milligrammes down to 50 milligrammes, in line with the rest of our European neighbours.
There is also discussion of bringing the limit for new drivers and professional operators down to just 20 milligrammes – a quarter of the limit in place at this time (and the same limit that currently applies to Air, Rail & Maritime Workers).
About time. Surely it can’t be THAT long till Mainland UK come into line with the rest of Europe? Northern Ireland is clearly almost there, what are we doing lagging behind…?
Seems we need our Irish fellows to lead the way.
