  • The Risks Of Drink Drinking
    Alcohol is a drug that serious inhibits your ability to drive safely. It impairs your motor skills and as such your driving skill will be reduced. This is because your visual acuity is reduced and your peripheral vision is also affected.

    Remember, alcohol is a depressant; as such it can also affect both your judgement and your reaction time, which can be very bad if you are driving. So this, combined with the above points, makes driving under the influence very dangerous. However, if you're organising a night out, make sure that you make alternative travel arrangements such as public transport, choosing a designated driver, or booking a taxi from a local taxi business.

  • The Consequences Of Driving Under The Influence.
    In England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the legal alcohol limit for drivers is 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. A single alcoholic beverage can put you over the limit as there can be numerous factors which may affect the way your body is affected by alcohol. These can include your weight, age, metabolism, sex, the type of alcohol, any food you have eaten, and if you are stressed. It is strongly advised that you do not drink any alcohol at all if you are going to be driving.

    Also, remember sleep and coffee does not get alcohol out of your body's system. Time is the only thing that can remove alcohol from your body; as such you may still be over the legal limit when you wake up after a night out.

    There are numerous penalties for those who are caught drink driving. For example, you could face a minimum 12 month driving ban, up to 6 months in prison, and a criminal record. Also, the conviction could also result in job loss, increase in car insurance costs, and trouble gaining entrance into countries such as the United States of America.

  • Why Should You Choose A Taxi Instead Of Opting For A Designated Driver?
    Choosing a designated driver can be a fantastic solution for some groups, however for others it can leave the designated driver feeling like they are left out of the fun. Whilst all their friends are enjoying a pint of beer or a glass of wine, they're sat drinking a soft drink.

    So next time you're planning a night out in Reading, give Loddon Cars a call and book a taxi. That way, all of your friends can enjoy themselves and have a stress-free journey home in the morning.

The Importance Of Drinking Alcohol Responsibly.
