Government statistics released today indicate that the number of women being convicted of driving with excess alcohol is rising year on year.

Women Breathalyser and Blood Test

No official theories have been put forward for this increase in Women being convicted for drink driving.

It is, however, a medical fact that a woman’s liver is smaller than a mans. This means that if a man and a woman both consume an equal amount of alcohol, the woman’s alcohol would be higher. As the female liver is smaller, it processes the alcohol more slowly and so the concentration of alcohol in the blood rises higher and also increases the likelihood of a failed roadside Breathalyser.
