Eat drink and be merry! After all,  this is the Christmas spirit isn't it? Of course!

However, as there are so many people celebrating in the weeks before Christmas and New Year it can unfortunately mean there is also an increase in the number of drivers who 'chance' drink driving.  Either knowingly, or by not being aware of the one or two 'festive' tipples they have consumed has taken them over the limit.

The legal limit is: 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of blood OR 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath OR 107 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of urine.  To most of us this doesn't actually mean a lot, it would be much easier if we could measure per glass of wine or per pint!

However, alcohol affects people differently depending on a number of factors including your weight, gender, whether you have eaten recently and your age,  which is why it is easy to accidentally go over the legal limit.
To be safe, it is advisory to abstain from alcohol entirely to ensure your own and your passenger's safety as well as other road users and also to avoid losing your licence.

Don't let this spoil your Christmas, enjoy a drink or two but ensure you have a safe way to get home!
