It's enough to make anyone turn to drink

I think that plans to make the drink driving limit even lower are unnecessary and should not be made by people who are driven around by chauffeurs at the expense of the tax payer.

I don't see how having a glass of wine and then driving is so absolutely terrible; personally I find people who drive very badly much worse as they make other people angry. Like people who insist on driving slowly in the middle lane of a motorway. Or any kind of 'traffic calming' measure because it enrages me, rather than calms me.

And as for just randomly stopping people to breathalyse them whether or not there is concern for it:


I presume this is because they have arrest targets and so they think it will be easier to reach those if they can lock someone up for having ane extra portion of sherry trifle at dinner, but I think most of us would prefer the police to catch murders or stop people mugging innocent people in the street.

That is all. Thank you.

So you want to booze ( a 'few drinks' - yeah) and drive and the thought of the police upsets you . Well deary me. DUI leads to death - like it or not.
Though the police should be able to do the breatherlysing and catch muggers at the same time.

I don't actually drive very often but there is a great difference between having a glass of wine and driving and 8 pints and driving. To me, it's a way of reaching police targets. And the policeman I was talking to in the pub the other day agreed with me.
