Drink driving

Driving or attempting to drive whilst above the legal limit or unfit through drink carries a maximum penalty of six months’ imprisonment, a fine of up to £5,000 and a minimum driving ban of 12 months.

Although there has been a significant success in reducing the number of people killed in drink and drug drive related collisions over the last 15 years, drink driving remains a serious, life threatening issue.

If you drive at twice the legal alcohol limit, you are at least 50 times more likely to cause a road crash than a driver who hasn’t been drinking. Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. The only safe option is not to drink alcohol if you plan to drive, and never offer an alcoholic drink to someone else who is intending to drive.

There is no such thing as drinking and driving. It’s drinking or driving, and there’s no excuse.
