i recently saw on the tv that darbyshire police are stopping the random breath tests this christmas and insted introducing the "shop your friends" idea. this is not happening in my area as most of the main roads into preston and blackburn have major stop and test "impact brigades", with up to ten police officers involved. this means anyone who saw or assumed you had had more drink than they considered ok, they could follow you out to your car outside the pub and give your car reg to the police. my opinion of this, and i hope that other members will post their view, is that this is no different to the cctv cameras, in that if you are "clean", then you have nothing to hide. however the downside is that i have always kept to the max 2 pints rule, beer, 3.9% max, not lager, and have confirmed that this is ok for me. i am a firm believer in people being responsible for their actions and not spoiling everything for everyone else, eg: they ban all drink from driving based on a handfull of gob heads that "drunk drive",or "drug drive" who i would ban for life. there are some very nice venues in my area for a nice meal and a couple of drinks for the responsible majority to enjoy and using their car for transport, i really hope that the yobo minority do not spoil this for the majority.
