    No problem with me though. I really value my driving licence.

    Not to my mind you are not. I am a firm believer the law is too tolerant with drinking and the alcohol limit should be a big fat ZERO!

    Glad to hear it Daisy....... :D

    Unfortunately there are some who still treat it as a joke. Just something you can get away with. It's not till something goes badly wrong and has a disastrous effect on somebody's life/lives that it gets through to them. The real cost, the trauma, the grief.......

    It isn't pleasant dealing with such things on a daily basis. Christmas is going to be a time of Joy for most of us........for some it will be a time of sadness, just because somebody wanted just one more drink .........

    My advice if you are going to drink........don't drive.

    Queer stuff this alcohol , it certainly counters the effects of bee venom ! as a beekeeper I've resorted to the odd neat vodka when I've had general reactions (Hives -nettle rash)to a particular sting .Works every time for me :D

    A big fat zero would criminalise innocent people :wink:
    Some people have fauna in their gut that converts the contents into alcohol ! albeit low level and in no way having a detectable adverse effect on their cognitive skills .
    Sophisticated technology would never the less brand them as criminals :(
