Drinking and driving: a sensible limit in the U.K. too

Montag 7. Dezember 2009 von htm

Telegraph View: Plans to review permitted alcohol levels for drivers would have no impact on criminally irresponsible individuals who routinely drive while well over the limit.
Driving while over the alcohol limit has become taboo for the overwhelming majority in this country. The fact that the limit is sensibly pitched at 80mg of alcohol to 100 millilitres of blood has helped contribute to that. In allowing people to have a drink or two, the law is seen as fair and measured and, as a result, it is widely observed. This is particularly important in rural areas, where many do not have the option of using public transport for an evening out. (Quelle: Google Alkohol Alert, 12/5/09) telegraph.co.uk, 12/3/09 Online-Comment pending: It is interesting and amusing reading British comments on this matter, but fact is that in other countries the change from 0.8 to 0.5 Permille has reduced the numbers of alcohol related accidents and mortality by more than 10 Percent. (e.g. Austria, Germany, Switzerland) That’s the only thing that counts.
