In the Festive Spirit.
A gentle reminder. I’d like to share an experience that I had this weekend regarding drinking and driving. Its obviously very relevant during the forthcoming festive season.
Many of you will know people who have had brushes with the authorities on their way home from the odd social session over the years.
Well, a couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends and had a few too many light ales than maybe I should have had – It happens.
Knowing full well I was very likely over the limit, and knowing I’d had a close call from being pulled over by a traffic cop to take a breathalyser only the week before, I did something I’ve never done before – I took a bus home!
Anyway, I arrived home safely, enjoyed the ride and it was all free of worry about police pulling me over and testing me.
I know we often avoid doing this and take the risk of using the car we came in to go home in, BUT DON’T DO IT! The police will eventually catch you, you will lose your licence and maybe even your livelihood!
I’m sharing this experience with you because the incident was a pleasant surprise to me, particularly since I had never driven a bus before!
