THINK! (run by the Department for Transport) have created a new anti-drink driving advert.
Watch the short film here.
In 2011 15% of all road fatalities were due to drink driving – this campaign reminds us that there is no excuse for drink driving.
It is not possible to say how much alcohol you can drink and stay below the limit. The way alcohol affects you depends on:
- your weight, age, sex and metabolism (the rate your body uses energy)
- the type and amount of alcohol you’re drinking
- what you’ve eaten recently
- your stress levels at the time
So if you’re driving, it’s better to have none for the road.
