A timely reminder about drunk driving!

A warning to all you drivers, be careful about drink driving as we are getting close to Christmas and Police are out there checking on people. Last night I was out for a few drinks. One thing lead to another and I had a few too many cocktails and then went onto the wine. Not a good idea. Knowing I was over the limit, I decided to leave my car at the pub and took a Bus home. Sure enough, I passed a police checkpoint, where they were pulling over drivers and performing breathalyser tests. Because I was in a Bus they just waved it past. I arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise as I've never driven a Bus before and I am not even sure where I got it from..

Re: A timely reminder about drunk driving!

So if you are going to drink and drive the advice here is to drive a bus? where is the bus now?

Also if you are in/visiting Scotland then remember the limit is MUCH lower than in the rest of the UK. Drink 1/2 a pint and you will be OVER!

@HairyMcbiker, is the limit lower, or is it just that the 1/2 pint is whiskey!?!

Re: A timely reminder about drunk driving!

Well if drinking a pint of milk in England puts you over the limit then you have a real problem.
No it is 1/2 pint of bog standard beer. The limit is 50mg (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-30329743)
It says under a pint, but rule of thumb round here is NOWT!

Re: A timely reminder about drunk driving!

I used to limit myself to just one pint of lager or one glass of wine when driving. For the last few years I don't drink at all. It doesn't spoil my enjoymentat all.
