But that comes with the heightened concern of drink-driving. Alex Kindred, car insurance expert at, said: “With St Patrick’s Day also this week, there’s plenty to celebrate as pubs, bars and stadiums will be packed to the brim. And while this weekend is a time to let loose and have fun, remind motorists to heed their hangovers.

Our research reveals that almost a third (32%) of motorists drove in the morning after drinking, when they were potentially still over the limit. You may not realize it, but alcohol can stay in the system for a long time after drinking. So while you may think you’re in control the next day, that’s not always the case.

If you drink, you shouldn’t drive. But if you must drive the next day, make sure you are in a safe and reasonable condition. Our Drinking and Driving Calculator will help you clear up any confusion and estimate when it’s safe to get back behind the wheel.”
