What’s the law on drink driving?

In the UK, the alcohol limit for drivers is 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, 35mcg per 100ml of breath or 107mg per 100ml of urine. In most other European countries, the limit is less, usually 50mg per 100ml of blood. (3)
How much can I drink and stay under the limit?

There is no foolproof way of drinking and staying under the limit. How much alcohol will push you over varies from person to person. It depends on: (4)

* Your weight
* Your gender (men tend to process alcohol faster than women)
* Your metabolism
* Your current stress levels
* Whether you’ve eaten recently
* Age (younger people tend to process alcohol more slowly)

What’s the punishment if I get caught drink driving?

Anyone caught drink driving will be banned from the road for at least 12 months, and fined up to £5,000. You can also be sent to prison for up to six months. Imprisonment, the period of disqualification and size of fine depend on the seriousness of the offence. (5)

If you’re caught drink driving more than once in a 10 year period, you’ll be banned for at least three years

BEST ADVISE - DON'T EVEN HAVE ONE, THEN YOU'RE SAFE AND SO IS EVERYONE ELSE
DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT ON NOS

I know it's a bit light hearted but just to bring it down to earth with a bit of a bump......

Here's my Sisters Beautiful BMW E320D SE Estate after it was hit by a Drunk Pub Landlord doing around 85mph on a dark country lane, to which after hitting my sister only could think of legging it!.......W***er!!!!
He hit her that hard that he spun my sisters BMW so that the tyre on the inside was ripped off its rim and his whole suspension was torn from his!

Sorry to offend anyone on here , but Drunk Drivers should not expect to get a Second Chance!!!

Luckily my sister survived, but still has some movement limits, the Drunk W**ker basically got off with a fine and ban for this!

So don't drink & drive, it's that simple!
