The chief executive of the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research, Leana Olivier, says the proposed new limit of zero-percent drunk-driving is of no value if it is not supported by certain actions.

A proposed amendment to the National Road Traffic Bill is expected to be tabled in Parliament soon.

In August Transport minister Fikile Mbalula said the government plans to introduce new legislation around drinking and driving by December 2020.

Olivier says talk is cheap without action.

The Automobile Associations’s Layton Bears argues that this stricter condition will do little to change drivers’ attitude and behavior.

Meanwhile, a senior social worker with Christian Action for Dependence, Emma Gibbons, says the proposed change is necessary.
