Ministry of Health experts find small amounts of alcohol do not affect driving performance

A team of experts from the Ministry of Health has found that a blood alcohol concentration of 0.24 pro mille and below does not affect the performance or judgment of drivers. In its Saturday edition, the daily Lidové noviny reported that the ministry has instructed traffic police to no longer pursue cases of drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.24 pro mille or below. Previously, any alcohol consumption prior to driving was illegal in the Czech Republic. Many other European countries are considering the introduction of 0.00 pro mille limits.
