South Africa to clamp down on drunk driving this festive season

With the rise in accidents and accident-related deaths on South African roads, law enforcement units are upping the ante in an effort to clamp down on reckless driving. 

The Cape Argus reports that driving under the influence of alcohol is known to be one of the leading causes of accidents, and an increase in roadblocks and random alcohol testing can be expected this festive season. In South Africa, the legal limit for private motorists is a breath alcohol content of 0.24mg per 1 000ml, or a blood alcohol limit of 0.05g per 100ml. This equates to approximately 2x330ml beers or 2x130ml glasses of wine for a person who weighs about 75kg. The limit is stricter for professional drivers, such as truck or taxi drivers, at a breath limit of 0.01mg per 1 000ml. The paper points out that drivers can legally be pulled over and tested for alcohol at any time, be it during a formal or informal roadblock, or being pulled over by an individual police officer.
