Car, truck, train and tram drivers will no longer be responsible for the deaths of many of the hundreds of pedestrians killed around this country.
And it goes further than that.
Drivers begin their lives as road users, firstly, as pedestrians.
The average age of drinkers having their first drink has been decreasing over some time.
08 will mean that junior age drinkers will be subject to random breath tests that will give an opportunity for police and parent counselling and the full force of the law should they be found to be over the limit.
Prior to any chance of obtaining a licence, a pedestrian .08 law will inculcate the idea of drinking below a limit.
This has to be a good thing for the driving culture of this country.
