French drink-drive laws dangerous for winemakers


A group of French winemakers are complaining about the new drinking and driving laws in France. With the new drinking laws, three glasses of wine provide enough alcohol to constitute drunken driving even if the glasses were drunk with a meal.
Les 4 Vérités sur le Vin, which is the group campaigning for a higher legal driving limit for wine than for other types of alcohol, argues that the legal driving limit of 0.5 grams per litre of blood, among other regulations, is too hard on wine – and has led to declines in restaurant wine sales and national wine consumption.
