Police Boss Hints At Zero Drink Drive Limit
7:00am 18th November 2014
The man in charge of Cornwall's police says drink drive limit should be cut - possibly to zero.
Tony Hogg wants a minimum price for booze too.
He is leading a group of other Police and Crime Commissioners trying to cut the £11 billion that alcohol-fuelled trouble costs the country.
Mr Hogg said: “The public will know that I have made tackling alcohol related crime and misuse a clear priority in Devon and Cornwall.
“We have already made some good progress, but there is a clear need to bring PCC’s together to send out a clear and powerful united message to the national decision makers.”
“As the public’s elected representatives we have a strong collective voice, and we are well placed to make a real difference.”
“For example, we will lobby for a reduction in the drink drive limit, and the introduction of minimum unit pricing. We will be working closely with police chiefs and officers.”
