    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 cocktails and then went onto the wine.

    Not a good idea. Knowing I was over the limit, I took a Bus home. Sure enough, I passed a Police checkpoint in Manchester, 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 Double Decker before and I am not even sure where I got it from.

    If you drink and drive, you shouldn't be worried about getting pulled over. You should be more worried about not crashing and killing someone

    This is true, you can assemble an iPhone in 6 minutes though which more than makes up for it.

    I think the priority should be making sure that you don't hit a bump and spill some.

    Haha, that's been bandied about so many times this week on FB.

    Anyhoo I spent 4 years in SE Asia pissed every day riding a motorbike or driving a car. Not big or clever but totally doable. Never crashed or killed any one. I think it's all about the quality of drivers out there, not drink. I could be shit faced, NYE especially, and ride home feeling sober then once I got home I'd have the mother of all hangovers probably from a brain/alcohol fight. If you're shit at driving, then you'll probably kill someone. I'm more dangerous from being tired from <3 hours sleep every night for the past 3 years than 4 years of being drunk on a bike. I even pulled over today to have a 30 min nap in the car as my reaction time was low. Tired driving is worse = FACT.
