As announced in 1983, the Department of Transport has issued new procedures for dealing with drinking and driving offenders deemed ‘high risk’, being those disqualified for the second time in 10 years for driving with a blood alcohol concentration over 2 ½ times the legal limit (i.e. 200 mg per cent) or failing to provide a specimen. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre at Swansea will notify such an individual that when he applies for his licence on the expiry of the second period of disqualification (usually three years or more) ‘consideration will be given to whether these convictions indicate a medical disability and, if so, whether he has managed to get his drinking problem under control’. He will be advised to seek help from an alcohol counselling agency and will be given a list of such agencies.
