In the heat of a fun night out, it can be hard to keep track of how much you’ve had to drink and it’s always risky to guess what your BAC might be.
We don’t want to see any more people killed or hurt because of drink driving so we’re asking people to separate drinking and driving altogether.
Now, any first time drink-driver with a BAC under 0.10 whose licence is cancelled must pay to fit an alcohol interlock into each vehicle they drive - including their home car, work car and/or motorbike - when they get their licence back. The interlock is required for six months or more.
Putting drink driving in perspective, 99.7% of drivers and riders tested aren’t over their legal BAC limit; however almost one in five (19%) drivers and riders killed in the past five years had a BAC greater than 0.05
When you're drinking, it’s difficult to work out if you’re under the limit. Have you eaten much? Are you tired? How many standard drinks have you had?
