67% of drivers are significantly impaired BELOW this level—if we are shown to be ‘impaired’, that’s still a year’s ban. Many Police Services are honing their skills at Field Impairment Testing.
Interestingly, the limit of 80mg/100ml of blood is very high compared with most of Europe (including Scotland! where it is 50mg/100). Indeed, there is nowhere in the world that has a higher drink driving limit than England and Wales.
Remember! Trying to work out if you’re over the limit is a fool’s game; it’s virtually impossible to calculate. If you want to know how to calculate when you’re alcohol-free (and therefore at no risk of conviction), simply purchase an eLearning session or contact us about a workshop at your workplace, school or college.
