Drink-Drive Limit Not Moving

Posted by:AutoMoney

drink-drive-limitThere has been a lot of talk recently about the current drink-drive limit and whether or not is should be lowered.

Speculation was rife that the government were shortly due to announce that the drink-drive limit would be reduced to less than a small glass of wine, but in a statement from the road safety minister it appears that this isn’t going to happen any time soon.

Andrew Jones has said that the speculation surrounding this issue is not true and England will not be reviewing the current legal drink-drive limit in the near future. In Scotland the current legal limit is 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, which was introduced in 2014, to bring Scotland in line with the rest of Europe.

This news means that England and Wales will remain at 80mg per 100ml of blood for the foreseeable future.
