‘Cut drink drive limit’

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

SIX out of 10 mo­torists want the drink-drive limit in Eng­land and Wales slashed to im­prove road safety, says the RAC.

Its poll of 1,727 driv­ers found nearly 38 per cent wanted the limit cut from 80mg to 50mg per 100ml of blood, while 21 per cent went for a 20mg limit.

The call comes on the 50th an­niver­sary of Bri­tain’s drink-drive laws.

An RAC spokesman s aid: “I t ’ s t i me t he Gov­ern­ment fell in line with a large swathe of other coun­tries who are en­forc­ing a 50mg limit.”
