This Christmas, watch your alcohol intake as it’s easy to drink too much at this time of year – only to get behind the wheel the next morning and inadvertently drive with alcohol still in your system.  Alcohol slows your reaction time, affects judgment, reduces concentration and inhibits co-ordination – increasing the likelihood of an accident.  One in five drink-drive convictions happens ‘the morning after’.  There is no rule of thumb as we all process alcohol differently.  Just four large glasses of wine or pints of beer can still leave alcohol in your system the morning after.
