Remember Scotland also has the lower limits

Posted by UK Drug Testing on

Just a quick blog post to remind you that Scotland has now had a lower drink drive level than England for over 3 years.

The level in Scotland is 0.05% BAC in line with much of the rest of Europe. The rest of the UK still remains at the higher 0.08% BAC drink drive level.

The Scottish Parliament lowered the drink drive limit to 0.05% BAC in December 2014. The law lowered the blood alcohol limit from 0.08 %BAC to 0.05 %BAC bringing Scotland in line with most of Europe. The limit in England and Wales will remain 0.08%BAC. As it will in Northern Ireland for the time being. The Northern Ireland Assembly is also expected to lower the limit in the near future. Scottish buyers or anyone using breathalysers in Scotland need to choose the 0.05 %BAC or below breathalyzers. All our digital breathalyzers already have alarm settings of 0.05 % BAC and continue to be suitable for use in Scotland. 

If you are buying a breathalyser for use in Scotland remember the Scottish drink drive limit is lower than the rest of the UK at 0.05% BAC

We have a range of 0.05% BAC digital breathalysers .
