Alcohol Limits
Drinking and driving is never a good idea, period. | The maximum legal alcohol limit is 0.5mg per ml. | The police don’t need ‘probable cause’ to stop your vehicle and breathalyses you. They’re permitted to make random stops and checks, so you could easily find yourself stopped unexpectedly | It is better to stay on the safe side and abstain from drinking alcohol if you intend to drive.
If you happen to get into an accident with your Action rental vehicle, do not leave the scene. |Stop the car exactly in the place where the accident took place. If this is not possible, leave a mark at the spot so that to inform the authorities for the exact location. | Do not accept any responsibility and give us a call to come help you out. It is illegal to leave an accident without informing the police.
