Reduce the drink drive limit bring it inline with Scotland & Wales

This petition had 8,760 supporters

We are seeing almost daily people killed by drunk drivers. It is time to make a stand and get the limit lowered and sentences changed to ensure Drinking & Driving becomes a thing if the past.

Why am I campaigning for this law to change. Well my husband was killed by a drunk driver in Oct 2015. Both he and I always agreed you should never have alcohol in your system when driving. I personally have seen the number if deaths on our roads increase over the years and the sentences handed out by our courts are laughable.

So this is what I would like to see changed. Firstly bring down drink drive levels in line with Scotland as a minimum. If you fail a breath test you go to jail on your first offence for a minimum of 3 years with a 3 year ban to start on your release from prison. If you are caught a 2nd time drink driving you go to jail for 5 years and lose your licence for life. 3rd time drink driving go to jail for 15 years as you are also driving whilst disqualified.

I would hope that the threat of longer sentences instead of fines would discourage drivers from drinking. If you support this petition please do sign and share. Only people can bring about changes to the laws let our loved ones make it home safe & sound.
