Every year thousands of motorists are charged with drink driving. In 2018 in the UK the number of alcohol-related deaths was 9,214, with 7,551 alcohol attributed deaths recorded. In the same year, there were 586,780 alcohol-dependent drinkers, with 18% of which under some form of treatment. With these alarming figures it’s easy to see why the government has to take action, hence the Road Traffic Act declaring that anyone with 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood is considered unfit for driving.
So what are the effects of driving under the influence of alcohol?
- Increased tendency to speed and drive recklessly
- Distorted perception of driving abilities and lack of self-control
- Delayed reactions in handling a vehicle
- Altered sight, sense of hearing, poor concentration, impaired judgement
Even the tiniest amount of alcohol in the blood can impact your driving ability. To drive safely good concentration and judgement are key skills, along with the ability to react quickly to unexpected situations should they arise – all of these factors are impaired whilst an individual is under the influence of alcohol, putting yourself and others in danger. It is imperative that all road users are made aware of the fact that drinking and driving is a serious motoring offence, carrying serious punishment.
