The government is taking several measures to help wine producers sell their products, said Agriculture Minister István Nagy at the opening of the Red Wine Days in Villány on October 2 and 3 in the small town of Baranya.
After telling how to support wine producers in the midst of a crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic, the head of the ministry turned to a completely different topic.
Referring to the current rules on alcohol consumption in relation to driving, the Minister said that they would like to start a social debate, a dialogue on the possible relaxation of zero tolerance in the future.
In Hungary, since 2008, those who have consumed alcohol before driving cannot sit behind the wheel, the previous regulation was permissible up to a blood alcohol level of 0.8 per thousand. The penalty for drunk driving is usually a ban on driving, which varies widely from 1 month to 10 years, supplemented by a fine of up to hundreds of thousands of forints. If a personal injury or death has occurred, the punishment can be even more severe.
What do you think of the proposal? We are curious about the opinions of our readers!
Do you support the principle of zero tolerance, or would it be better to abolish it?
I object, I would delete it
