Put Alcohol Units more clearly on bottles and cans

Do you know how many units are in YOUR average alcoholic drink? DO you know how much you can drink without being over the UK drink driving limit? This is the current UK limit: 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. Few people are familiar with this law, and even fewer know how to follow it. I am campaigning to get clearer messages on the front of alcohol bottles and cans, stating the number of units contained within, and how much can be had while still being within the limit. I feel this would reduce the wastage of Police time, and reduce the huge number of fatal alcohol related deaths on UK roads every year. Please sign my petition, and help to save lives. Cigarettes come with warnings about health hazards. Alcohol kills too, doesn't it? In the UK, more than a third of fatal crashes are caused or influenced by someone driving under the influence of alcohol. By drinking twice the alcohol limit before driving means that you are 30 times more likely to crash than someone who hasn't been drinking. I intend to collect enough signatures for my petition before passing it on to the local MP to see where to go next.
