The Oban Times - - Front Page -

DRINK- DRIV­ING of­fences in the High­lands and Is­lands have fallen since the in­tro­duc­tion of the lower drink- drive limit, new fig­ures have shown.

There was a 9.2 per cent re­duc­tion in the num­ber of of­fences in the re­gion in the nine-month pe­riod fol­low­ing the change.

Fig­ures ob­tained by Al­coSense Per­sonal Breathal­y­sers show that be­tween De­cem­ber 2014 and Au­gust 2015, all but one area in Scot­land re­ported a re­duc­tion in drink driv­ing of­fences, with a de­crease of 12.5 per cent na­tion­wide.
