"Scottish Families fully supports the Scottish Government changes in the drink driving limit which come into force today (50mg in every 100ml of blood). Scotland has now taken steps to lead the way in the UK on this issue which brings the limits in line with most of the EU.
On Average 20 people die on Scottish roads and many more are injured in accidents involving drivers over the legal limit. Behind each of these accidents are families and communities who are directly affected by alcohol and the actions of another.
Scottish Families supports the clear message being sent today to those who continue to ignore the warnings about drink driving. There is never an excuse to drink and drive!"
