Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill

EDM number 68 in 2014-15, proposed by John Leech on 10/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Legislative process, Northern Ireland Assembly and Roads.

That this House welcomes the Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill introduced to the Northern Ireland Assembly, which would amend drink-drive and driver training laws for Northern Ireland; further welcomes that the Bill introduces new lower blood alcohol content limits of 50mg/100ml for most drivers and 20mg/100ml for learner drivers and novice drivers in their first two years after their test and for professional drivers and significant changes to driver training and testing; notes that only the UK and Malta currently have a blood alcohol content limit for drivers that exceeds 50mg/100ml; further welcomes the substantial reductions in road casualties achieved in Northern Ireland in recent years; and believes that, if implemented, these amendments will help to further reduce the number of people deaths and injuries on roads in Northern Ireland.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
