    "Morning after" drink driving / Kirsty Gallacher


    1 Not allowed!
    Kirsty Gallacher has been banned from driving after admitting to drink-driving, having been found to be three times over the limit of 35mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.

    However, it turns out this was approaching lunchtime the day after she had been drinking, when she concluded the night with a taxi home.

    This is something I've been very cautious about having been involved in an accident a fair few years ago. It wasn't my fault - the passenger of a car coming the other way to me pulled the handbrake, sending the car they were in into a spin straight in front of me whereupon I hit it.

    I'd had a few the night before, not many, but I did feel slightly concerned as I was breathalysed. If I had been over the limit, it would have changed how the incident affected me significantly. I wasn't, but I'm been even more careful ever since.

    I do wonder how much and/or how late you need to be drinking to register a reading that high late the following morning.
    Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      3 times over the following lunchtime, she must've had a fair bit?

      "Jennifer Dempster, mitigating, said Gallacher very rarely drank............"

      Hmmm, 3 x the limit at 11am the following day suggests she likes a bit of a lash-up when she does have one.

      Caught driving erratically......

      The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant was on her way to meet her children when witnesses spotted her driving erratically in the town at about 11am, the court was told.
      Good job she was caught when she was.

      She must have had a shedload of booze to be 3x over, or finished drinking sometime early morning.....or both.

      Morning after drinking catches far more people over the limit than evening of drinking !!

      I'd imagine she must have had a fair bit because it doesn't matter how 'used' to drinking you are it all leaves your system at the same speed as a drinker !! Well women take longer to get rid of alcohol than men per unit.

      Need to leave an hour per unit drunk to get it out of your system and eating and drinking make no difference to speeding it up. Prob is it's difficult to count units on a night out.

      I reckon the might have had a cheeky one in the morning heir of the dog if you like

      Otherwise one hell of a late night and a not insignificant amount of booze. That's a very high reading at 11 am. I got a similar reading at a similar time (albeit at a detox place I dont drive) some time ago after necking a few cans on the way
