Should there now be a total ban on alcohol for people Driving? the limit is a total joke why not just scrap it

Update:

I think if you wake up worse for wear thru booze you have a duty to take responsibility for your behaviour. so you dont drive if you have any doubt at all.

    I am totally with you. If you drink you don't drive - end of

    Someone posted a similar question about this subject a

    while ago and gave a website to look at about a kid called Jacqueline Saburido who had her life ruined by a young lad who had been drinking. This is the website.

    www.helpjacqui.com If this does not turn you against drink driving, well nothing will.

    This is a hard question to answer .....

    I think that most people now accept that it is irresponsible to drive whilst using alchohol and will restrict themselves to soft drinks only if they are using the car.

    What do we do about driving the day after a drink ? The rate that alchohol remains in the bloodstream will vary from one individual to another. I would suspect that most people will still have small amounts of alchohol in their systems the morning after on their journey to work.

    While the 'morning after' level of alchohol (for somebody who drinks moderately is probably well under a level that would affect their driving it will still be above 0.

    Should people in these circumstances be penalised for driving with a small amount of alchohol in their system ? It would seem to be unfair to penalise somebody for having an alchohol level that does not affect their ability.

    I would keep the existing limits to cater for circumstances such as these.

    I, from personal experience, think that there should be a total ban, license withdrawal and community time spent with recovering alcoholics.
