Vehviläinen: Lower Blood Alcohol Limit Possible for Youths

Transport Minister Anu Vehviläinen says she is prepared to consider reducing the legal blood alcohol limit for young drivers. In an interview with the Centre Party's online publication Verkkoapila, Vehviläinen said it might be feasible to try experimentally lowering the legal blood alcohol limit from its current level of 0.5 promil to 0.2 promil in Finland. However the Minister said she's not in a hurry to implement the measure. Rather, Vehviläinen said she would prefer to first see what impact similar measures would have in practice in other countries. In Germany, a similar proposal was implemented for young drivers last year. YLE
