However, there won’t be an automatic ban attached to the lower limit.Gardaí will also be given new powers under the new legislation.They’ll be able to impose three penalty points and an on-the-spot fine of 200 euro for motorists who are caught slightly above the new legal limit of 50 milligrams.Susan Grey of the Donegal based road safety organisation PARC says it’s sad to see that people caught over the limit won’t receive an automatic ban, but accepts it may deter people from chancing one drink. However, she’s critical that the ban for people caught between 80 and 100 milligrams will be reduced to six months.[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/susan1pm.mp3[/podcast] Facebook By News Highland – August 23, 2011 Newsx Adverts Pinterestlast_img read more
