Are you ok to drive?

19th July 2010

The Daily Mail has commissioned a study to find out the difference between the current legal limit of alcohol permitted in order to drive, with the limit used in many other countries.

A report by Sir Peter North suggested that the limit be reduced from 80mg of alcohol per 100ml blood to 50mg. The study showed "across the board that just a few millilitres of alcohol worsened participants’ driving performance by as much as 33%. On average, all four were 8% worse at keeping to a fixed point in the road at the lower limit and 21% worse at the current UK limit."
