RoSPA calls for lower drink limit

CALLS have been made for the Government to lower the drink-drive limit.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) wants the Government to make the move while its new Road Safety Bill is before Parliament. It comes after Christmas drink-drive figures showed the number of motorists flouting the law was the highest for seven years.

Kevin Clinton, RoSPA head of road safety, said: ‘Studies have shown that cutting the drink-drive limit from 80mg to 50mg could save about 50 lives and 250 serious injuries a year.’
