  6. Drink driver's ban is cut after winning new limit case appeal

    An appeal court has cut a drink driver's ban after ruling he presented "no greater risk" under Scotland's new limit than he did under the old one.

    Peter Jenkins was fined £1,400 and banned for 34 months after being caught on Wigtown Road in Newton Stewart.

    It was based on his reading of 87 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath being nearly four times the 22 limit.

    However, the sheriff appeal court said that approach was "erroneous" and cut the ban to 22 months and fine to £900.

    The limit in Scotland used to be 35 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath - as it remains in England and Wales - but was cut to 22 micrograms in December 2014.
