Tougher on drivers

James Hannaway (letter, 4 February) writes that his freedom to drink and drive should not be sacrificed. I am in favour of more restrictions on my driving freedom - the new lower limit on drink-driving, a ban on using mobile phones while driving, a 20mph speed limit in residential areas. Why? Because on the best available evidence, all these measures would reduce deaths and serious injuries on the roads, and I don't think my convenience is worth anyone else's suffering.
