Northern Ireland drivers caught over the alcohol limit could be in court within days of being detected, police have warned.
The fast-track pilot scheme will see dangerous drivers off the road with “near immediate effect,” Assistant Chief Constable Alastair Finlay said. (“Northern Ireland drivers face fast-track prosecution” – BBC News, 24 November 2011)
“People don’t accidentally have a beer or glass of wine, they make a conscious decision. The only right decision is to leave the car or motor bike at home if you’re drinking.
“I want all motorists to think about the consequences to yourself and your family of being involved in a serious collision.
“How would you feel if your actions resulted in you or one of your family being paralysed? How would you feel if some innocent person was killed?”
And morning (or should that read ‘mourning’?!) after the night before is an issue not to be ignored.
Save that licence – and that life – with a true police-grade detector. And for our Southern Irish fellows, the AlcoDigital 3000 is now available via a dedicated Irish site – www.AlcoDigital.ie. With their recently reduced drink drive limits, they cannot be too careful.
