The lowdown on drink driving. One in five fatal crashes involve drink driving. On average, 51 Queenslanders die due to drink driving every year. a further 695 are injured. Most are hospitalised. So why is alcohol so dangerous? Drinking slows your reaction time, blurs your vision and makes it hard to judge things like speed and distance. Pretty scary huh? But how do you know when you’re over the limit? It’s hard because different people process alcohol differently. Plus, different glass sizes and different alcohol content make it hard to tell how much you’ve had. When will you be okay to drive? Well, the only thing that breaks down alcohol is time. You can still be over the limit the next morning. That’s why, if you’re driving it’s easier to stick to the soft stuff. But what if you want to have a few drinks? Make a plan. Organise a lift, catch a cab or ride-share, or public transport. Designate a driver or stay at a mate’s. It’s that easy. Together we can make the roads safer for everyone.
