Women In Cornwall And Devon Five Times Less Likely To Be Breathalysed
10:16am 4th December 2014
Women in Cornwall and Devon are up to five times less likely to be breathalysed.
We already know the southwest is one of the worst places in the country for drink driving.
Figures between August 2013 and August 2014 show women drivers in Devon and Cornwall accounted for just 23% of all roadside breath tests.
On average 7% of women and 10% of men fail roadside breath tests.
Gary Ray is from road safety charity Brake.
He said: "75 per cent of drivers who fail the test after a crash are men, twice as many men as women admit to drink driving, so you can perhaps see why these figures come out as they do.
"Cornwall is a very rural, beautiful part of the country, but actually it is a concern, and we would make a special appeal to make sure people don't get behind the wheel if they have had a drink."10:16am 4th December 2014
