Government urged to take zero-tolerance approach to drink-driving

By / 11 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Sources close to Transport Secretary Phillip Hammond have said that he is sceptical about cutting the drink-drive limit following the publication of Sir Peter North's report on drink and drug driving.

In response, Ellen Booth, Brake's campaigns officer, said: 'We urge the Government to look at the research on lowering the drink-drive limit when considering how to respond to the North Report. The evidence is that reducing the drink-drive limit would save lives, reducing the social and economic burden of drink-drive casualties. Research shows that even a small amount of alcohol reduce drivers ability to react quickly and safely to hazards so we are calling on the Government to take a zero-tolerance approach to the drink-driving limit.'
