Hampshire Constabulary’s road safety lead, Sergeant Rob Heard said:

“The importance of personal responsibility for your choices must be emphasised. Think about the pain and misery you could inflict on innocent road users by a reckless decision to drive or ride after consuming alcohol or taking drugs.

“Being caught in control of any motor vehicle under the influence of drink or drugs can destroy your own life.

“Motorists breaking the law can face a criminal conviction, a prison sentence, driving ban, and the loss of your job.

“I ask people to remember particularly that it is not possible specifically to say how much alcohol you can drink and stay below the limit. The way alcohol affects you varies depending on your personal characteristics.”

These factors include:

· 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

The morning afterSergeant Rob Heard said:

“The morning after is also a crucial time for your decisions and the safety of all road users.

“After just four pints of lager, you may not be safe to drive for up to 13 hours, so whether you are drinking in the afternoon at a works Christmas party, or going out for a few drinks in the evening, make sure you are safe to drive.

“Just because you haven’t had a drink for a few hours, it doesn’t mean all the alcohol has left your system and you can drive, you are still likely to be over the limit.”
