Women Drink-Drivers Double

A recent survey has shown that the number of women found guilty of drink-driving has almost doubled in the last few years.

Figures from 1998 suggest that women accounted for approximately 9% of the total drink-driving population – however the study in 2012 has dramatically revealed that the figure has rocketed to an astounding 17%, almost twice as high as the previous amount.

Almost two-thirds of those questioned also admitted to not being aware of the legal drink-drive limit on UK roads – whilst almost all of those quizzed claimed to be able to drink more alcohol than the “average woman”, considering themselves less of a risk to drive under the influence of alcohol that other females.
