Over Christmas, 14 per cent of people drink more than they intend to, with Britons consuming more than 600 million of units of alcohol during December. These statistics may not be something to worry about on their own, but when it leads to people making rash decisions to drink drive, it can put them and other people in life threatening situations.
Drink driving poses dangers on UK roads throughout the year, but it is at Christmas that many people drink more than they normally would and make the rash decision to drive under the influence. This poses a number of risks for the driver if they are caught, including driving bans, fines and penalties, and the potential of a prison sentence.
That’s why Richard Silver Solicitors has decided to do their part by raising awareness of drink driving at Christmas with the creation of the infographic, Christmas Drink Driving Risks. The infographic provides vital information on drink units, the dangers of driving the morning after, and the consequences one can face if caught.
See below for the infographic, and make sure that you don’t make a mistake that could cost you your livelihood and your Christmas.
