The Scottish Government is clear that we want a lower drink drive limit – bringing Scotland in line with the rest of Europe – because we believe it will save lives and will help make Scotland’s roads safer.

One death as a result of drink driving is one death too many, so we owe it to the people of Scotland to consider what action we can take to reduce deaths and injuries on our roads.

As a result of drink driving, an average of 20 families every year have to cope with the loss of a loved one and around 760 people are treated for injuries caused by someone who thought it was acceptable to drink alcohol and then get behind the wheel and drive. This cannot continue.
