Letter: No change to drink-driving limit

Sir: Your report that police chiefs are about to make a public show of support for lowering the present drink-driving limit heralds a breakthrough for the campaign run by doctors, road safety and health groups for many years.

Lowering the drink-driving limit will save hundreds of lives. With the Association of Chief Police Officers about to add their voice to that of the BMA, the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Alcohol Misuse and Alcohol Concern, surely it cannot be long before the Government sees the sense of changing the law.
