Al­co­hol warn­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Driv­ers are be­ing warned that they are three times more likely to be in­volved in a traf­fic re­lated ac­ci­dent even af­ter con­sum­ing just one drink ver­sus be­ing sober.

Statis­tics show that on av­er­age 3,000 peo­ple are killed or se­ri­ously in­jured each year in drink-drive col­li­sions ac­count­ing for 16% of all road deaths in Bri­tain.

Suzan­nah Robin, al­co­hol safety ex­pert and Sales & Train­ing Di­rec­tor at Al­coDig­i­tal – the UK’s lead­ing sup­plier of breath­a­lyz­ers, com­mented: “Many peo­ple be­lieve that they are still safe to drive af­ter just one drink. How­ever, what they don’t re­alise is the only safe level is zero.”
