Drink driving – no change

A new emission from the Hammond Organ.

The government's decision to rule out lowering the legal drink-drive limit has been criticised by doctors and road safety campaigners as "bitterly disappointing" and a wasted opportunity to save lives.

Hammond said toughening up enforcement rather than lowering the limit was the key to tackling those drink-drivers who "flagrantly ignore" existing legislation.

Ah, yes. And there’s the promise of a higher speed limit. This, too, will be rigorously enforced.

Other news.

A DEESIDE woman who set up a support group for people affected by alcohol has admitted driving when nearly four times the legal limit.
