Idiotic proposal stopped

The idiotic proposal to lower the legal blood alcohol limit for driving from 80 to 50 mg/100 ml has been stopped it seems.

Considering that only one fatal accident in the last year involved a driver with a blood alcohol between 50 and 100 shows that this move would have done almost nothing at all for road safety, but would have turned tens of thousands of NZers into criminals for sharing a bottle of wine over dinner.

It seemed to be all about telling NZers how they should live their lives, rather than improving road safety (hint – better roads) which no doubt is why even the Automobile Association opposed the move.
