Im not making the nanny state argument about driving home after 4-5 pints, im making it about driving after 1 or 2.
I think its reasonable that if my judgement that 1 or 2 pints doesn't have a significant effect on driving ability nor is supported by statistics to have had a material bearing on accidents and injuries then the law shouldn't be changed.
Should we bring in every easy law that affects millions of people day to day on the say so of some marginal or subjective anecdotal evidence? If we're going for 'low hanging fruit' ban motorbikes.
It is the nanny state, its the mind-set that seeks us to insulate us from all danger and suck out of our souls.
Its one thing to believe something, its another to incontrovertibly prove the argument with facts, I don't see the facts being presented,
Why I don't like this the most is it takes away the safety net for having a drink the night before. Any guesses what time I would be safe to drive home from Wales on Sunday with the these new limits had been imposed?
Im fairly sure 11am is reasonable with current limits, new limits could mean 4pm?
What these new limits mean is that a responsible drinker having had a night out is effectively unable to drive the next day.
