Delay in Road Safety Strategy

January 10, 2010

At the beginning of December it was announced that before the new road safety strategy is published there was to be a look at the issues of drink and drug driving as there may be a case for reforming the current legal framework covering drink and drug driving which the Government would wish to include in the strategy.

Sir Peter North has been asked to provide Lord Adonis with advice on the merit of specific proposals for changes to the legislative regime for drink and drug driving, reporting by the end of March 2010.  His report will inform the final contents of the next road safety strategy. 

For drink driving, the report will advise on the case for changes to the prescribed alcohol limit for driving (either reducing the current limit, or adding a new, lower limit, with an associated revised penalty regime).    For drug driving, the study will advise on whether there is a need for new legislation to make it an offence to drive with a named substance in the body.
