Over-55s worst drink-driv­ers

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MORE than 1.6mil­lion mo­torists over the age of 55 have driven while over the limit, a study sug­gests.

Re­search by Di­rect Line Mo­tor Insurance also found that the main rea­son given for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence was that the trip was only over a short dis­tance.

More than 750,000 of these older mo­torists also ad­mit­ted that they drove when they could have still been drunk from the night be­fore.
