Many drivers in Britain would like the drink-drive limit lowered, according to new research.
Around 59pc of motorists would back a reduction, an RAC survey of 1,727 people found.
The Scottish Government dropped their limit from 80mg per 100ml of blood to 50mg in December 2014, but for the rest of Britain the legal level remains 80mg.
Figures from the Department for Transport show that 143 people were killed in collisions involving alcohol impairment last year, the same number as in 2012.
Police Scotland data shows drink-drive offences fell by 12.5pc in the nine months after the lower limit was implemented.
RAC road safety spokesman Pete Williams said: “Fifty years after the drink-drive limit became law, it is time for the Government to move with the times and fall in line with the large swathe of other countries which enforce a 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood limit.”
