Drink driving world cup warning

M.A.J. LAW
1 July 2014

England are out, but drivers should still be wary over drink-driving.

Police have issued warnings over World Cup drink-driving in many English cities, and although England are out, drivers should still be wary over drinking and driving.  If you are watching today’s Argentina v Switzerland in the pub later on this afternoon, police forces will be “watching” football fans and asking those not to be tempted to drive after having a drink.

On average for each unit of alcohol consumed it can take an hour to enter the body and another hour to leave it. If you were to drink four pints of your favourite lager, you should not drive for at least 13 hours from finishing your last pint.
