Driving whilst under the Influence









Drink driving is extremely dangerous and illegal. Any amount of alcohol will affect your ability to drive and this can have disastrous consequences. It’s not worth the risk.

The only safe option is not to drink alcohol if you plan to drive, and NEVER offer an alcoholic drink to someone else who is intending to drive.

Remember also that you could still be over the limit if driving the morning after!!

Driving under the influence of drugs, whether prescribed medication or illegal substances, is just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol and is also against the law. But are you aware that some prescribed drugs, and those you can buy over the counter such as cold and flu medicine, can also have an affect on people’s ability to drive.

Suffolk Constabulary and The Department of Transport has lots more information and advice on driving under the influence of drink and drugs, and about staying safe on our roads.
