New drink drive law ‘not tough enough’ – News –

This is the view of the brother of a man who lost his life in an alcohol related incident the morning after a nights drinking. I raise the issue today as over the last week I have heard a lot of persons complaining about the new lower drink drive limits and complaining that they are too tough. This story from the Wexford People gives us the other side of that argument. Yesterday’s Mail On Sunday also had an article that said that one fifth of all road fatalities in Ireland were related to driving the morning after. Certainly if appears that more persons are taking heed to the tough limits particularly for commercial drivers.   It does appear however that rural Ireland is finding this hard to accept.  Hopefully this post gives another view.
