Drunk Driving in Northern Ireland – Do NOT Do It!
The Northern Ireland authorities are serious about driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. And rightly so, for it costs dearly every year in accidents and lives lost.
Currently (Mar. 2009) the legal alcohol limit for driving in Northern Ireland is 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood or 107 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of urine or 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
How much drink will induce these numbers may depend on your age, sex, metabolism and stress levels. To be safe DON’T DRINK AT ALL when you know you will be driving. To be even safer, don’t drink at all!
We are a family of teetotalers and enjoy life without coming under the influence of alcohol irrespective of whether we are driving or not. And we recommend this lifestyle choice to all!
