Call for focus on teen health15th July 2008
The government's chief medical officer has said a complete ban on alcohol should be imposed on teenage drivers to stop them from drink-driving.
Sir Liam Donaldson said: "Inexperienced drivers have a higher rate of being involved in accidents, and the rate of crashes for young drivers who have been drinking is 2.5 times higher than for older drink drivers. Recent surveys have found younger drivers are more likely to think it is acceptable to drive after drinking two pints, in contrast to older drivers."
