One for the road: what happens when we lower the drink-drive limit?

Dr Hilary Hamnett (Senior Lecturer in Forensic Science)
@hilaryhamnett
In December 2014, the drink-drive limits in both Scotland and New Zealand were lowered to try to reduce road deaths.

It will explore what effect the new limits have had on road deaths, and how frequently alcohol and/or drugs were found in these cases before and after the limit change in both countries.
