Drunk driving: the National Assembly wants to crack down

The President of the National Assembly announces that she wants to tighten the screws even more against drunk drivers. We will explain everything to you.

Drink-driving has always been a real scourge on the roads. And for good reason, it is one of the leading causes of road deaths in France, and has been for many years. According to Road Safety, alcohol is responsible for 30% of fatal accidents. Suffice to say that driving after drinking is extremely dangerous, since it multiplies the risk of a fatal collision by 17.8. However, this practice is still very widespread today in France, even if very severe sanctions already exist. But the government would like to go a little further.

Zero tolerance

After the serious road accident which claimed the lives of three young police officers on duty a few days ago, the President of the National Assembly took the floor. Yaël Braun-Pivet spoke at the microphone of Sud Radio and recalled the danger of drink-driving ” you have a drink, you don’t drive. I think that when you’re driving a car and you’re either drunk or under the influence of narcotics, you’re dangerous because the car becomes a weapon.“. She even advocates zero tolerance for drunk drivers.

No alcohol

Indeed, she states that ” zero alcohol, zero drugs, when you drive and if you drink, you walk home or you don’t“. However, there is a very low chance that this request will succeed and that the government will put in place a more severe measure. However, the latter really wants to tighten the screw, while a driving license suspension in the event of driving under the influence of narcotics is already envisaged. But nothing has been done yet and it could take quite a while before it comes to fruition.
