Only one pint for the road

We all like a drink. We all like a drive. We all like a nice Sunday drive to a delicious pub lunch washed down with a couple of cheeky pints. But according to new plans those cheeky pints could be cut to a not so cheeky single pint...soon.

Lord Adonis is not a 1980’s porn star but the transport secretary, and has called for an official review of the UK drink driving law recommending that the limit be cut by 30mg of alcohol to 50mg per 100ml of blood. This would allow the average man to legally down just under a pint of beer and the average woman a large glass of vino before jumping behind the wheel.

The government which is currently reviewing the current law says the new policy, if approved would prevent up to 65 motor deaths every year.
