Virtually everyone knows that it is illegal to drink and drive. But I was shocked when recently I learned that a group of my friends were not aware of the penalties.
Not only does drink driving increase the chances of you causing a major accident on the road, affecting your life and those of other people, the law is quite rightly, harsh. Here are the facts.
If you are caught drink driving, you face a minimum 12 month driving ban.
You can go to prison for up to 6 months
The possibility of being fined up to £5000
Not only that, but your lifestyle would dramatically change. Think of the freedom that driving gives you, to drive to work, visit your friends, and drive to the shops. This would all change after you are caught drink driving.
The answer is simple: don’t drink and drive, ever.
