Drink driving limit

Drink driving has always been an important issue in the minds of Car Insurance customers and road users across the country. The amount of deaths related to alcohol seems unnecessary and unjust, and drink drivers pose a massive threat to the rest of us on the roads.

So it comes as great news that cutting the drink driving limit across the UK could prevent over three thousand injuries, and nearly one hundred and fifty lives could be saved, a new report has shown,

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence produced this report based on a method developed by researchers at Sheffield University, which estimates the impact of lowering the drink driving limit that motorists on UK roads have become so used to. The reduction has already been implemented across fifteen European countries, so Britain is slow to take up the initiative, but it has been suggested that the current allowance of 80mb of alcohol per 100ml of blood be dropped to a more conservative 50mg.

Drivers caught under the influence of alcohol face punishment such as invalidating their car insurance policy, having their licence revoked and being banned from driving. In 2008, UK data compiled by the government revealed that over four hundred people were killed in drink related accidents, which accounted for over seventeen percent of all road fatalities.

Support for the lowered level of alcohol in the blood stream is widely backed, so we could see this new law implemented before long, and hopefull reducing the cost of our Car Insurance Quotes as accident levels reduce.
