DO NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR
›› Drinking coffee, taking a cold shower or downing a litre of water before you drive will make absolutely no difference to your alcohol limit. Once it is in your system, your liver needs time to process it.
›› And don’t think you are off the hook the next morning.
If you’ve had a heavy night of drinking and got to bed at 02h00, for example, you might still be over the limit when you leave for work at 08h00. ››
Roadblocks are not the only reason to not drink and drive.
Think about the lives you will ruin if you get in to an accident and kill someone. And taking the back roads is not the answer. There are generally more people and animals in these roads anyway. Make the shift in your mind and choose to never drink and drive, regardless of proximity or likeliness of getting caught.
