A driver is stopped every two minutes in Scotland – the likelihood of getting caught if you drink and drive is greater than ever.
More than 20,000 Scottish drivers are stopped by Police Scotland every month. Scotland’s new drink driving limit means just one drink is enough to fail a test, and in the eyes of the law it doesn’t matter if you’re only just over – you’re still a drunk driver.
Despite what many people think, eating food or perceived tolerance to alcohol do not impede the effects of alcohol – even a small amount impairs your judgement and reactions. Even one drink makes you three times more likely to be in a car crash.
