Big glass warning after drive ban
A motorist banned for drink driving says she wants to warn of the dangers of drinking too much alcohol from large glasses used by bars and pubs.
Jacqueline Atkinson, of Llandudno, Conwy, said she ‘never imagined’ she was over the limit after drinking one large glass of wine. She weighs only eight stone and said after the case she feared slim women could unwittingly be caught out.
"I was completely oblivious to the problem," she said. "I was between meetings, I had an hour-and-a-half to kill, and I had a meal and a glass of wine."
