Driving Safely the 'Morning After'

“How do I know when it’s safe to drive the morning after a night out?” is a question many people ask…

In response to that question, the Vintners’ Federation of Ireland (VFI) launched a public awareness campaign about driving safely the morning after a night out. The Federation, supported by Drinkaware, wants to arm people with the facts so they can make an informed decision about when it’s safe to drive.

The social media campaign is in response to a widespread misunderstanding amongst the public about recent changes to drink driving laws, with many people now worried about getting behind the wheel during the so-called ‘morning after’.

The two-minute animated video explains the facts about standard drink measures and how understanding that it takes the body one hour to process a standard drink is the key to safe driving.
