Christmas time brings plenty of warnings for motorists, urging them to take care on the roads and not to drink and drive. Unfortunately during this festive time it has been revealed that 62% of men would be happy to drive after drinking, while only 34% of women say they would be.
The Christmas party season is nearly upon us and the police have launched their anti-drink driving campaigns. But a new survey reveals that up to 13% of motorists still plan to drink and drive this Christmas and 10% would still get in a car driven by someone they knew had drunk too much.
Police have arrested almost 300 drunk or incapacitated drivers a day during month-long clampdowns over the Christmas period.
A total of 9,148 people were arrested across England and Wales as police targeted those suspected of driving under the influence of drink.
This sad fact is all too common over the Christmas period and the fact that motorists would be jeopardising their car insurance policy isn’t even an issue when getting into the car exceeding the drink drive limit means that motorists are not only putting themselves at risk but the safety of everyone around them.
Motorists caught drink driving face an automatic ban and fine or possible prison sentence, after which surveys have revealed that on average car insurance premiums rise by 82% for motorists who have been convicted and that’s only if you are lucky enough to be accepted for car insurance.
