Alcohol is a major factor contributing to road crashes. Even small amounts of alcohol can inhibit your driving performance.
On average :
0.05 blood alcohol concentration doubles your risk of an accident
0.08 blood alcohol concentration increases the risk by 4 times
0.15 blood alcohol concentration increases the risk by 25 times
ARE YOU UNDER .05?
As a general guide (some people can manage less) :
• Men 2 X standard drinks in first hour and 1 every hour after that
• Women 1 X standard drinks and 1 every hour after that
Please Note: The only thing that reduces your blood alcohol level is TIME! Drinking coffee, eating, sleeping, having a shower do not help reduce it.
