Watch out for the £70,000 drink this Christmas

By 18th December 2020No Comments

IAM RoadSmart has calculated the true cost of a beer or a glass of wine.

Should it take you over the drink drive limit, the financial impact following a conviction could be as high as £70,000. The total takes into account fines, legal fees, higher car insurance premiums, alternative transport costs and potential loss of salary following conviction.

For business drivers, a drink-drive conviction could mean instant dismissal. That’s why, to avoid putting lives in danger, and costs of £70,000 or more, we always advise having #NoneForTheRoad.
