The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has supported Scotland's efforts to lower the drink driving limit.

It has been promoting the idea for a number of years, encouraging the government to reduce the legal limit from 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood to 50mg in an effort to lower fatalities on the roads.

Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA’s chief executive, said: "We now urge England and Wales to follow the progress that Scotland and Northern Ireland are making in a bid to save more lives across the UK.

"There is conclusive evidence that reducing the drink-drive limit will significantly reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads."

News of RoSPA's ambition for a lower drink-drive limit comes after the organisation handed out awards at the Advanced Drivers and Riders (RoADAR) ceremony.

Over 10,000 volunteers were represented at the event, which took place at Birmingham's National Motorcycle Museum on November 24th.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801500936-ADNFCR
