NORTH REVIEW AND THE DRINK DRIVE LIMIT
EDM #266
Tabled 17 June 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House recognises the number of people killed and seriously injured as a result of collisions involving drivers over the legal Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit; notes the publication of Sir Peter North's Review of Drink and Drug Driving; further notes that with a BAC limit of between 50mg/100ml and the current 80mg/100ml limit a driver has a six times greater risk of road death than a non-drinking driver; further notes Sir Peter's estimation that a reduction of the BAC limit from 80mg/100ml to 50mg/100ml could save around 168 lives per year; and calls on the Government to implement Sir Peter's recommendations to reduce the BAC limit to 50mg/100ml and to maintain the current 12-month mandatory driving ban for drivers found to be at the lower limit.
