Drinkers warned: ‘If in doubt don’t take the car out’

Drivers who aren’t sure whether they are over the drink-drive limit the morning after a night’s drinking have been warned: "If in doubt don’t take the car out".

The advice comes from Edmund King, president of the AA, who is alarmed by new research from his company which shows that 80 per cent of drivers think they might have been over the drink-drive limit the morning after a night of drinking.

According to the research, 47 per cent of poll participants know someone who has a drink-driving habit and only 32 per cent would notify the police if a drink-driving acquaintance got behind the wheel having consumed more than the legal limit of alcohol.

Mr King said: "On most occasions the majority of drivers will not be over the drink drive limit the morning after. However, if someone has been to a party drinking into the early hours and gets little sleep they might be over the limit the next morning."
