Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. You risk a fine of up to £5,000, a minimum 12-month driving ban and a criminal record. Tolerance to alcohol depends on a combination of factors: weight, age, gender, stress and recent food consumption – don’t risk it.

You’re four times more likely to crash if you use a mobile phone while driving – is it really worth the risk? It’s illegal to use a hand-held mobile when driving on the road. If you are caught, you could be fined and lose your licence and your insurance costs could go up. For more information click here.
