Drivers Caught Whilst 7 times over the Drink-Drive Limit

In Scotland, two drivers were caught whilst being 7 times over the drink-drive limit.

Each driver was stopped during rush hour traffic. The first was a 49-year-old man who was 7 times above the legal restrictions of 22 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

The next day, a 55-year-old female was pulled over in Bridge of Don and discovered to be over 8 times the legal alcohol limit.

These two situations took place in the afternoon at crowded commuter times during the day when you have busier roads. Fortunately, neither of them was involved in any accidents.

Even with powerful advertising and marketing throughout the years across the United Kingdom regarding the hazards and dangers of drink-driving as well as the highly-publicised drop of the Scottish drink-drive restriction in 2014, it really is discouraging that some individuals do believe it is harmless and okay to drive an automobile after alcohol consumption.

As a spokesperson for Police Scotland verified that the force is totally dedicated to dealing with this insensitive, anti-social and possible life-changing conduct, and will be vigilant and enforce the drink-drive laws across the area every day.

It is never acceptable to drive while drunk or under the influence of drugs and must never be seen that way. People who flunk drink/drug drive checks might have to deal with at least a 12-month driving ban, a criminal driving record for a long time and a huge fine.
