Drink drive limits under review

Transport Secretary, Lord Adonis, expects the review of drink drive limits to recommend they be cut from 80mg to 50mg

The change would mean that the average man would be restricted to under a pint of beer and the average woman half a pint. The penalties for drink driving may also be cut; currently the minimum ban is 12 months. Most EU countries apply points for minor breaches in drink driving so shorter bans could be introduced if caught with between 50mg and 79mg.
