This is a common offence with strict guidelines and punishments for those individuals convicted for the offence. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland the alcohol consumption limit for drivers is 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 ml of breath, or 80 milligrams in 100 ml of blood, or 107 milligrams of alcohol per 100 ml of urine.
If an individual is convicted of drink driving they may receive one or more of the following:
- A minimum of 12 month driving ban
- A criminal record
- A fine
- Up to 6 months imprisonment
- An endorsement on their licence for 11 years
