If you have been drinking then you should already know that you aren’t able to drive home. Even if you have only had one drink, or feel quite sober, it isn’t worth you getting behind the wheel in case you have an accident and car accident claims in Gedling can be a result of this. Even if the other driver as at fault when you have an accident, the police will assume that you were the one at fault because you have been drinking.
You may lose your licence, or have to pay out for damages, but more importantly you may end up in prison for causing a serious accident which could kill someone. Knowing that it isn’t worth even trying to drive, you should think about how else you can get home safely.
