Zero alcohol limit in Ireland

In case any of you are going over Christmas and the New Year, zero limit for drink driving now in place. Oddly car hire did not mention it and I have not seen it in the usual press and TV coverage. My brother told me after I had two pints on way to see the mother and I was driving.

Quick google says their limits are the same as Scotland. Not zero but as good as.. before the new laws came in up here I would sometime drop around at a friends house after work, and would limit myself to two beers before going home (or getting a taxi back if the mood was such that I wanted more). As soon as the law came in in 2014 I just went around and had a cup of tea instead.

I'm told that in most countries the limit in hire cars is zero. I think that is the policy of the car hire companies though.

I went to a wedding in Ireland many years ago ina rural castle we had all been driinking for many hours and it was decided we would have dinner in a restaurant a few miles away, I was one of the drivers and said I couldn’t drive I was over the limit, one of the other guests said there was no problem he would sit next to me and showed me his ID as Garda

If that was over here, the Guardia officer wouldve done that and then fined you when he got.to the restaurant.

Not sure that is a new limit OG? Its been that low level for a while. I think the only changes this year were for learners, where the level is even closer to zero (and drivers such as taxi drivers!). The guards aren't as uniformly relaxed in rural areas as they were in the old days. Less of the community policing feel about it

There is a fb thing going round complaining that the police are going to be checking drivers for being under the influence of drink and drugs at Xmas. it is shocking how people here think that it is Ok to have 4 or 5 cañas, a couple of glasses of wine and a copa or two and still drive.

I remember sitting in a bar in Estepa when 4 coppers wandered in and,in the space of an hour, each consumed 4 pints with chasers and then left the bar. I asked the owner if they had finished their shift, he laughed and told me they were off to set up checkpoints either end of the town to check drink drivers coming back from work!!

Looked new Irish rules up and it is basically a half pint (20mg+alcohol) can get you a six month ban if you are a new driver but points and fine if you are experienced. Only in Ireland could you make a law totally confused. Also talking about body weight to make it clear that fat bastards can get away with more.
