The year-end banquet season has begun. Most drivers know not take the wheel after having a drink. But what many don't know is that alcohol-impaired driving could extend to the following day. According to the Taipei City Police Department, many drivers are still under the effects of alcohol the morning after a big night out. Doctors say that the liver can take up to a full day to completely metabolize a round of strong drinks.

最近正值尾牙旺季,警方大舉攔查酒駕,讓很多人都不敢晚上喝酒還開車。但北市警方發現,早上取締到酒駕件逐年增加,因為很多人喝酒隔天仍然照常開車上班。交通部特地拍影片宣導,醫生提醒,喝烈酒甚至要休息達24小時,身體才能把酒精完全代謝掉,所以隔天開車依舊有酒駕風險。

Most drivers know better than to take the wheel right after drinking alcohol. But most don't know that the effects of alcohol can linger into the following day. Taipei police say that recently there's been a 25 percent increase in DUI cases from the morning after.

不少人都知道,聚餐完不要酒駕,卻往往疏忽隔天酒意未退,台北市警察局統計,去年晨間飲酒取締件數比之前增加25%。

The Transportation Ministry and the Taiwan Beverage Alcohol Forum have produced a video with some surprising facts about drunk driving. In it, a physician says alcohol takes much longer to metabolize than many people think.

交通部和酒與社會責任促進會共同拍攝影片,請醫師揭露酒精在體內代謝時間,比大家想像的時間更長。

Physician
After alcohol is consumed, it is mainly metabolized by the liver. This process actually requires a considerable amount of time. A can of beer has about 5 percent alcohol by volume, and if you do the calculations, that amount of alcohol will require 1 to 2 hours to metabolize.

[[肝膽胃腸科醫師 郭東恩]]
“到我們體內之後主要是有肝臟代謝,那這個代謝其實是需要相當的充足的時間。像換算起來的話,一瓶易開罐的啤酒大概5%(酒精濃度),實際上也需要大概一到兩個小時的代謝。”

Whether the alcohol content is high or low, all drinks start to be processed in the body within 5 to 10 minutes. Doctors advise resting for at least 12 hours after drinks of up to 30 percent alcohol by volume. Drink anything stronger, and your body may need upward of 24 hours to shake it off.

不論酒精濃度高低,5到10分鐘就會進入體內,醫師建議酒精濃度30%以下要休息12小時以上;超過30%,更需要休息24小時以上,才能讓酒精從體內完全消失。
