Safety over Christmas: don’t drink and drive
Heading out to the Christmas party? Choose a ‘designated driver’ to get you home safely or plan your transport in advance. Don’t take the risk of drink-driving.
Driving under the influence of alcohol puts you, your passengers and other people on the road at serious risk of harm. Between 2010 and 2015, there were 36,900 reported drink drive accidents and 1,410 reported deaths caused by drink driving accidents in Britain.
Although there is a legal alcohol limit for drivers, it’s important to remember that ANY level of alcohol can slow your reaction time and impair your judgement, making it difficult to drive safely.
