Nothing is better for ridding one's nation from the image of being a bunch of alcholics than passing measures to allow drunk driving.

2. What limit?

I'm not familiar with what the limits are. If they are like the 0.08 in the US, that's pretty low. I could see this proposal for say 0.12 and less than 30 mph.
