A POLL by the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) shows that 80% of motorists are in favour of repeated drink drivers having their vehicles seized and sold or scrapped.
They were also in favour of the drink driving limit being reduced, with 28% of people favouring a zero tolerance policy.
IAM chief executive, Simon Best, said: “The support is there for tougher treatment of drink drivers.
“Not only do the majority want a lower limit – they also want tougher punishment for those that break the law, especially the worst offenders who present the greatest danger to other road users, their passengers and themselves.
“Our poll shows a desire to see more effective drink drive levels as well as much greater consistency of enforcement, prosecution, and sentencing, which reflects the level of danger associated with drinking drivers.”drink driving sentencing
