    If you don't drink and drive, it's not an issue

    Thanks for the update but as has been said, don't drink and drive. Zero percent alcohol in your bloodstream should be the law.

    it is so hard to no to some of the funsters. but never drive and drink. I find it hard enough to stand still and drink.

    This is the risky bit.. I often visit clients in Scotland, have a few beers, nights rest then drive to the office in the am.. I think I'm gonna need to avoid that in future because this low a level is ripe morning after territory

    Am I right in thinking England limit 35 mg Scotland was 80mg that more than twice our limit, and the new limit at 50mg is still nearly one and a half times the 35mg limit, or am I missing something, not that I wish to drink and drive either here or there. Pete

    I see what I have done it Blood not Breath lol

    No UK limit is 80 BAC which is blood alcohol concentration which is measured by a breathalyzer as being approximately 35ug or whatever.. Scotland's limit will be approximately 3/4 pint of lager after 5th December

    I absolutely agree with the sentiment (and I don't drive after drinking ever) but 0% isn't practical. It would probably mean a wait of three days after a single unit. As long as the limit catches the morning-after-a-serious-binge drivers I'm happy.

    That's a bugger...

    If you live near the Border and have a drink in England and drive home to Scotland you could have problems if you make a mistake...

    I am totally against driving while drunk, but there is a lot of hysteria about the limit and what it should be. Now call me an old cynic, but how many accidents are caused by people who are just under the present limit? could this be another way for "them" to make money? There are many stories about regular drinkers who drive many times over the limit and rely on luck to avoid an accident and / or getting caught, should "they" not try to catch them first. If the limit is lowered more people will be caught, but I very much doubt less people will be injured. It is just politicians playing games to grab headlines.
