    New video show how the UK drink drives

    By Jonathan Brown on November 27, 2016

    A new video has been launched providing insights into the UK’s drink culture.

    The Portman Group has launched the new infographic video on drinking trends in the UK.

    Statistics moving in right direction

    It uses official UK government statistics to provide an overview of patterns of alcohol consumption, including binge drinking, underage drinking, alcohol-related crime and drink driving.

    The total number of drink driving casualties (slight, serious and killed) has fallen by 52% since 2004, according to the Department for Transport figures.

    The number of drink-driving deaths has fallen by 85% since 1979.

    The number of killed and seriously injured casualties in reported accidents involving young drivers and riders (17-24 years old) over the legal alcohol limit has declined by 62% since 2004.

    Still work to do

    Portman Group Chief Executive, Henry Ashworth, says there has been a significant decline in harmful patterns of drinking in the UK. The statistics show that today the vast majority of adults are drinking safely and sensibly, and levels of binge drinking, underage drinking and alcohol-related crime have been declining for a decade, he adds.

    But he warns there are still challenges to be faced with some communities suffering disproportionately from alcohol misuse. Alcohol-related hospital admissions are increasing among older age groups.
