A new study has confirmed suspicions that drink-driving is expected to rise over the summer months, reaching new heights during the warmer spells than over any other time of the year.
The survey, carried out by confused.com has shown that over half of those questioned that were guilty of driving their cars over the legal drink-drive limit had committed the offence in the months of June, July or August.
51% of drivers believe that there is more temptation to drive in the summer months, whilst over a quarter admitted to the offence and almost a third had experienced being a passenger in a vehicle operated by a driver over the limit.
31% had also revealed that they found it more sociable to drink in the summer, which could have obvious results of those who choose to drive.
We all know that the temptation can be higher when the sun is out, but if you are going to be driving this summer, leave the car at home, or if you choose to drink instead, then stay off the alcohol.
Safe driving from Britannia!
