There are many articles about drink driving where you are told how many units of alcohol you can have to stay below the legal limits. Generally when people read them they think 'oh well in that case, I can just have the one..' - this is not one of those articles.
Here at Car Call UK the solicitors we work with deal exclusively with road accident related claims, and their consequences. Put simply we believe there is only one safe level of alcohol for road users - ZERO.
Alcohol is a drug that affects brain function. Psychologically it may give a temporary feeling of well being and stimulation - the reality is, even small amounts will start to impede judgement, awareness and co-ordination.
Driving safely requires all your perceptual and physical skills to be used at the same time. Any impairment whether it be from a small amount of alcohol or even tiredness, can significantly reduce your ability to make the kind of split second decisions that may make the difference between a serious accident - or just a 'near miss'.
If you have sustained an injury in a car accident that was not your fault, we may be able to help you injury compensation.
