Drink-drive change sends mixed message says MHK

Fri, 14 Jan 2011

An MHK believes the government is sending out mixed messages with its plans to lower the drink drive limit for R-plate drivers.

The blood/alcohol limit for new drivers and those with provisional licences would be 50mg.

The limit for everyone else would stay at 80mg.

A consultation on the new laws closes at the end of today.

Rushen politician Quintin Gill believes a two-tier system would undermine the message that you shouldn't drink anything if you're driving.

Mr Gill is to ask questions in Tynwald this month.
