RoSPA drink call

THE Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents is calling for new drink-drive laws after an increase in the number of people testing positive over Christmas and New Year.

Figures show that out of 15,279 motorists breath tested, 1,247 (8.16%) gave positive results, compared with 1,081 from 15,064 (7.17%) tested the year before. RoSPA wants the Government to cut the drink drive limit from 80mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood to 50mg, bringing the UK in line with much of Europe, increased police powers to stop and test drivers and more use of rehabilitation courses for drivers.
