Scotland's national speed limit could be different from the rest of the UK in future
Fleets could have to train their drivers to two sets of speed limits and make sure their health and safety code covers two different drink-drive limits, if Scotland takes up proposed new powers under devolution.
Scotland could set different national speed limits and drink-drive limits under proposals from Westminster for devolution. The changes were expected following the Calman Commission's review of devolution, which Labour promised to respond to the report.
Scottish secretary Jim Murphy is expected to outline which of the reports' suggestions would be taken up, later today.
