To ask the Scottish Government how many road deaths there were in the 12 months (a) prior to and (b) following the lowering of the legal alcohol limit from 80mg to 50mg per 100ml of blood.


Answered by Derek Mackay (15/01/2016):

There were 191 people killed on Scotland's roads in the 12 months prior to the reduction of the drink drive limit on 5 December 2014. However, figures for the 12 month period from 5 December 2014 to 4 December 2015 are still being collected and provisional figures will not be available until June 2016 following the publication of Key Reported Road Casualties Scotland 2015.
