New driving laws: Campaigners call for a 'smart package of measures' for drivers

They have called for a new lower drink-drive limit, better roadside testing and tougher consequences for those caught travelling while intoxicated.

The campaigners say a new tougher approach could even see road users forced to forfeit their vehicles if they are stopped drink driving.

Mr Greig said: “There is no one simple answer to reducing these figures.

“But IAM RoadSmart believes a much smarter package of measures is needed from the Government including a lower drink-drive limit to reinforce good behaviour, fast-track of evidential roadside testing machines to release police resources and tailored approaches to help drivers with alcohol problems.
