This morning, England fans were cautioned not to drive because they are at risk of automobile accidents.
If you drank a few drinks while watching England beat Italy in the Euro 2020 final last night, don’t drive on Monday morning.
Experts warn that drivers may still be over the legal limit on Monday morning, putting other road users in danger. They warn that alcohol can take up to 14 hours to leave your system, so drivers may be impaired until after midday today.
Only a small amount of alcohol in your system can “delay reaction times,” according to Hunter Abbott, MD of Alcosense.
He advises drivers to “not drive” if they have drank alcohol, even if they believe they are clean today.
“Even a tiny amount of alcohol lowers your reaction time, impairs judgment, and reduces both focus and coordination, increasing the risk of an accident,” he explained.
“Let’s all enjoy the final, whatever of the outcome,” he added.
“However, if you’ve had a lot of alcohol, don’t drive the next morning or use a personal breathalyzer to be sure you’re clear.”
Alcohol remains in the bodies of drivers who consume four pints of medium-strong beer or four big glasses of wine for up to 14 hours.
According to the experts, this may make the school run or morning commute a possible threat.
Drivers have also been advised that if their blood alcohol level is equivalent to the legal limit, they are 13 times more likely to be involved in a crash.
According to experts, drivers who are merely one-eighth of the legal limit are 37 percent more likely to accident.
According to an AlcoSense poll, 44 percent of consumers have consumed more alcohol since the outbreak began.
This number increased to 50% among the 18- to 44-year-old generation.
During Euro 2016, Road Safety GB discovered a modest rise in the number of drink and drug-related injuries on the road.

On the day of the England games, the number of incidents in the North East increased from 6% to 8%.
Swinton Insurance experts predicted that as a result of the large game, people will “drink more than normal.”
They cautioned last week that the excitement could lead to a rise in alcohol-related offenses.
