There were 260 deaths on Britain’s roads in 2021 where a motorist was over the drink drive limit – an alarming increase of 18% over the previous year and the highest since 2009. In fact drunk drivers accounted for 17% of all road deaths.
“What these figures don’t tell you of course, is how many more casualties were caused by ‘lethal but legal’ drivers – those who were above the point of intoxication where effects on cognitive function occur, but below the official drink drive limit”, comments Hunter Abbott, MD of personal breathalyser firm AlcoSense.
“It’s far easier than you think to be under the influence the morning after a few drinks the night before.This is where a personal breathalyser comes into its own. It takes the guesswork out of whether there’s residual alcohol in your system”.
