In Scotland approx 20 deaths each year are attributed to drink driving
I can't help but wonder how many of these accidents would have occurred anyone with the same tragic consequences. It seems that whenever alcohol is identified as a factor in an accident it often becomes the over-riding cause, masking some of the real underlying issues. IMHO there is a general lack of basic driving skills and ability which rarely features as a factor and never seems to merit the attention I should deserve. Reducing the drink driving limit will not address it and risks creating further problems with banned drivers continuing to get behind the wheel.
