Drivers warned over Scotland's drink-drive limit drop

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE

The Scottish drink drive limit will change this Friday 04/12/14

The breath alcohol equivalent will be reduced from 35 micro-grams of alcohol per 100 millilitre of breath to 22 micro-grams of alcohol per 100 millilitre of breath. The legal limit for alcohol in your blood will be reduced by 40% in Scotland, from 80mg to 50mg in every 100ml of blood. It brings Scotland in line with most other European countries.

What really happens when the police pull you over and you’re found to be over the legal limit?

Go behind the scenes with Police Scotland to find out.
