Majority in favour of reducing the drink drive limit in Scotland

Reducing the Drink Driving Limit in Scotland

Most respondents said that drink driving limits should be reduced in Scotland; 102 (74%) said yes, 33 (24%) said no. 

There was widespread agreement with the Scottish Government proposal for a reduction in the blood limit, an equivalent reduction in the breath limit and an equivalent reduction in the urine limit. Of the 102 respondents who supported a reduction in the drink drive limits, 89 respondents (87%) said 'yes' and 11 (11%) disagreed. 

The main consequences envisaged for these proposals were fewer road accidents, fewer casualties and the reduced risk of road accidents.
