'Drink-drive temptation' in summer

Posted on July 11, 2013 at 6:41 PM
TWICE AS MANY drivers think there are more temptations to drink-drive in the summer than the winter, according to an AA/Populus survey.
Younger drivers (aged 18 to 24) are more likely than older ones (55-64) to be lured into having summer drinks before getting behind the wheel, the poll revealed.
Regionally, drivers in north-west England were most tempted to drink and drive in the summer, while those in Scotland and Northern Ireland were least likely to do so.
If faced with designated drivers who had had too many, most drivers (68%) would confiscate their keys and call a cab.
This was most likely among those in Northern Ireland (80%). Those in south-west England were the most likely to find another way home and report their friend to the police (8%). In the UK as a whole 6% would take this action.
The poll also found that faced with over-the-limit designated drivers, 2% would say nothing and hope they drove all right.
Females were more likely (74%) than males (65%) to take away the keys if drivers were over the limit. Also, 71% of drivers aged 35-54 were more likely to take away the keys than the youngest drivers (65%) and the oldest drivers (64%).
The poll, of 23,450 drivers, helped launch an additional phase of the Automobile Association's (AA) joint anti-drink driving consumer marketing campaign with drinks company Pernod Ricard UK.
AA president Edmund King said: "We must continue to remind drivers about the dangers of drinking and driving. It is crucial that drivers and their friends and family consider the hazards of drinking and driving on all occasions throughout the summer.
"Twice as many people agree that there are more temptations to drink-drive in the summer than in the winter but it is worrying that a significant number of people would still accept a lift with a drink-driver. This is dicing with death as drinking and driving should never be mixed."
Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said: "Drink-driving is a menace and I want drivers to understand: if you get behind the wheel over the limit this summer, you will lose your licence, get a criminal record, and face a fine - you could even end up in jail.
"Nobody wants to spend their summer in a prison cell so whether you are drinking in the pub or at a friend's barbeque, make sure you do not drink and drive - it could have devastating consequences for you and for others."
