According to research out of the University of New England (UNE), the most dangerous place to drink isn’t the pub or bar, it’s at home.

According to analysis of data from emergency departments spanning a decade, 36 per cent of alcohol related injuries occur at home.

The street is the second most dangerous to drink, with 13 per cent of alcohol related injuries happening on the street.
