Don’t drive if you’ve been drinking alcohol or taking drugs. Alcohol and drugs can affect your ability to drive safely, and increase your chances of having a serious crash.
The police can stop you in your car and test you. If you fail the test you will lose your licence and be fined heavily. For an information sheet about alcohol and drug screening, click here.
If you’re planning on a big night out, make sure you don’t have to drive home. Arrange a lift or stay at a friend’s house. It’s much safer.
