However, the Department has already introduced further measures to tackle drink drivers. Since 2015, repeat drink drivers must medically prove they are not alcohol dependent before getting their licence back, and the right to blood testing was removed for drivers who narrowly fail breathalyser tests.

star this property question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Sugg on 2 April (HL14846), whether they will also monitor the results of the December 2014 reduction in the legal blood alcohol limit for motorists in Scotland from 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood to 50 milligrams; and what assessment they have made of the possible effects of introducing such a reduction for motorists in the rest of the UK. more like this

star this property answer text <p>An independent report of the impact of the Scottish limit reduction, led by the University of Glasgow, was published on 12 December 2018. The study found that lowering the drink drive limit was not associated with any reduction in total road traffic accident rates or serious and fatal road traffic accident rates.</p><p> </p><p>There are no current plans to lower the drink drive limit in England and Wales. The Government believes that rigorous enforcement and serious penalties for drink drivers are a more effective deterrent than changing the drink driving limit.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In 2017, an estimated 250 people were killed in accidents where at least one driver or rider was above the drink-drive limit. Drink driving is involved in around 5% of reported road casualties and 14% of fatalities.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to tackling drivers under the influence of alcohol and all dangerous drivers and is determined that all such drivers are caught and punished. We employ a combined approach of tough penalties and rigorous enforcement along with our highly respected and effective THINK! campaigns to reinforce the social unacceptability of drink driving, and to remind people of the serious ramifications that drinking and driving can have on themselves and others.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has also taken some important steps to tighten drink driving legislation. We have made it a requirement for high risk offenders to undertake medical tests before they are allowed to drive again, and we have also made sure that drivers over the breath limit cannot escape a conviction by demanding a further blood or urine test.</p><p> </p>
