Did U know?

In the last 50 years road casualties caused by drink driving have fallen dramatically, but in 2013, there were still 210 deaths due to drink driving – accounting for 12% of all road fatalities. By drinking and driving, you risk your life, those of your passengers and others on the road.

Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. You risk a fine of up to £5,000, a minimum 12-month driving ban and a criminal record.

What the Law say?

  • There are strict alcohol limits for UK drivers:
  • 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath
    80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood
    107 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of urine
    However it is not possible to say how much alcohol you can drink and stay below the limit. The way alcohol affects you depends on:
  • your weight, age, sex and metabolism (the rate your body uses energy)
    the type and amount of alcohol you’re drinking
    what you’ve eaten recently
    your stress levels at the time
    So if you’re driving, it’s better to have none for the road.

The consequences !!! :

There are strict penalties if you are convicted of drink driving, including:

  • A minimum 12 month driving ban
    A criminal record
    A fine of up to £5,000
    An endorsement on your license for 11 years
    However, this list does not reflect the everyday consequences of being caught drink driving which can include:
  • Increase in car insurance costs
    Job loss
    Trouble getting in to countries like the USA
    The shame of having a criminal record
    Loss of independence

The Institute of Advanced Motorists calculate that a drink drive conviction could cost between £20,000 - £50,000 as a result of fines, solicitors fees, increase in car insurance and loss of job.
