SPAIN’S DGT traffic authority is considering reducing the alcohol limit on roads to zero, making just one drop of alcohol too much to drive.
The DGT reasons that any amount of alcohol has an adverse effect on a driver’s cognitive abilities.
Currently, the alcohol limit for experienced drivers is 0.5 grams per litre of blood, or 0.25 grams per litre of breathed air, and 0.3 or 0.15 grams, respectively, for drivers with less than two years experience.
According to a study by Noc-turns 2011, 38% of young people have admitted drinking and driving, though that number is half what it was in the last decade.
