European Commission proposes total alcohol ban for novice drivers

The European Commission is proposing a zero tolerance on alcohol for new drivers, which would forbid drinking any alcohol at all before driving for the first two years after obtaining their licence.

While young people make up only 8% of all drivers, approximately two in five fatal accidents on European roads involve a driver under 30. To tackle the issue, the Commission wants to establish a temporary zero-tolerance approach to drink-driving as part of a package of measures to increase road safety across the EU.
