    Christmas riding or driving warning

    A warning to all!!!!

    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 pints and then went onto the cocktails. 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 not driven a Double Decker for 20 yrs and I am not even sure where I got it from.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
    It wasn't me !!

     :745: What did the passengers think.

    For the UK contingent.

    Seriously just remember if you get caught for drink driving you will lose your licence, at least get a big fine and costs and will have a criminal record (unlike most other driving offences) that you have to declare if you want to go to places like America and Australia.  Also alcohol takes a long time (many hours) to get out of your system and a lot of people get caught the next morning still being over the limit from the night before thinking they were safe to drive.
