    Drink Driving | A Seasonal Reminder | Kangs Motoring Offences Team

    Yet again throughout the Festive Season, the number of arrests for driving whilst under the influence of alcohol has increased following intensified police activity.

    Whilst many people appear to view a conviction for drink driving as less serious than for other criminal offences, research shows that loss of a driving licence very often leads to unemployment and potential financial hardship following loss of earnings.

    A huge number of cases are brought before the courts where the adverse alcohol readings are not grossly excessive, but sufficient to lead to a prosecution.

    All too frequently drivers stopped the morning after an event are failing tests and it is essential to appreciate that it is a risk to drive too soon after the consumption of alcohol.

    What Is The Permitted Alcohol Level? | Kangs Motoring Offence Advisory Team

    Consuming any amount of alcohol before driving is dangerous.

    Each individual reacts differently to alcohol and there is no set amount that can be consumed rendering it safe to drive.

    The only way to guarantee that the limit is not exceeded is to completely avoid drinking alcohol.

    Weight, age, metabolism, food consumed, gender and the type of alcohol consumed can all impact on how a body reacts to alcohol.

    The maximum levels of alcohol permitted are as follows:

    • 35 micrograms per 100 milliliters of breath
    • 80 milligrams per 100 milliliters of blood
    • 107 milligrams per 100 milliliters of urine
