Recently the news reported that 80-year-old Coronation Street actress Barbara Knox had been arrested for drink driving.
The reason we bring this up is because many people, and we’re not saying Knox is one of them, lull themselves into the idea that because they’ve been driving for decades, they can push the limits.
What do we mean?
They drink one more than they should and feel that it will be okay because they’re experienced and they’re not driving far.
Or they think about the fact they’ve driven the same route for years and have never had an accident.
But there’s never an excuse. You shouldn’t get behind the wheel if you are over the limit. Of course, many of us won’t have our offences listed in the tabloids, but we risk so much more: losing our licence or causing a serious accident. And we don’t want either of those things for you.
