Greater Manchester Police Salford have said: “In the UK, more than 200 people die every year in a drink-drive related crash.”
During this festive season especially, GMP Salford are especially concerned. “We want everyone to enjoy themselves this festive season, however it is important that it is done responsibly.”
It’s vital to make sure you and your loved ones do not get behind the wheel under the influence. “There is no way of knowing exactly how long it takes to sober up completely after drinking, but it is longer than people think.” GMP Salford said.
There’s no way of knowing exactly how long it takes to sober up completely after drinking, but it’s longer than many people think. That’s why the only safe amount to drink if you’re driving is nothing at all #NonefortheRoad pic.twitter.com/WQVOM8V7G7

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the drink drive limit is 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood – this is the average but depends on your height, weight and sex.
“The only safe amount to drink if you’re driving is nothing at all”
The hashtag #NonefortheRoad is circulating Twitter to raise awareness and to stop drinking and driving occurring this Christmas.
