Research by AXA has revealed that the majority of British motorists don’t know what the drink drive limit is (Channel 4).
The study showed that 60% of UK drivers don’t know the drink drive limit, while more than a quarter of drivers believe they can drink significantly more than the legal alcohol limit.
AXA asked 800 drivers to answer questions about the drink drive laws and only 39% stated that the legal alcohol limit for driving is the equivalent of one pint of beer. 28% think the limit is higher, with 13% believing that the legal maximum is the equivalent of a pint and a half of beer. The survey revealed that 13% of drivers think they can down two pints of beer and still drive legally – and a 2% minority said the limit was even higher.
