Young driv­ers ‘will­ing to risk drink driv­ing’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

AL­MOST 30 per cent of mo­torists aged 17 to 24 are will­ing to risk driv­ing af­ter drink­ing, a poll to­day showed. And the num­ber of these young driv­ers pre­pared to drive the morn­ing af­ter a heavy drink­ing ses­sion has risen in the last four years, the sur­vey also re­vealed. As many as 29 per cent of young driv­ers were ready to gam­ble on drink­ing and driv­ing, the poll by road safety char­ity Brake and in­sur­ance com­pany Di­rect Line found. This was a re­duc­tion on the fig­ure of 44 per cent in a sim­i­lar poll in 2007. But the num­ber of driv­ers aged 1724 risk­ing get­ting be­hind the wheel the morn­ing af­ter had risen from 45 per cent in 2007 to 53 per cent now.
