Strengthen drink-drive laws

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News - DAN CUSH­ING Bourne

GOOD on the Govern­ment for want­ing to re­duce the drink drive limit. But I would go fur­ther and toughen up the law as a whole, and this is how I pro­pose how its done:

If caught, you lose your driv­ing li­cence for five years and are fined £3,000. Once those five years have ex­pired you will have to re­take your driv­ing test.

Once you have passed your driv­ing test you then will be made to dis­play an “A plate” on your car for 18 months. Fail­ure to do so will re­sult in a £5,000 fine and your li­cence is taken away for two years. Then you will have to re-take your driv­ing test.

Any re­peat of­fend­ers will lose the li­cence for a min­i­mum of 10 years and a max­i­mum of life, and be fined up to a min­i­mum of £15,000 and a min­i­mum term of two years in jail.
