The Government has received findings from a report that calls for Britain’s drink-driving laws to be toughened to a level that would put some people over the limit after one drink. In the report Sir Peter North recommends reducing the maximum legal limit from 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood to 50mg. Sir North also believes that roadside test facilities should be implemented for the detection of drugs in peoples saliva. The Transport Secretary is considering the contents of the report and has confirmed that he will also need to consider the effect on the drinks industry.
