image for UK Passes Round the Clock Sobriety Law for Motorists

Under a new law, British drivers will be forced to prove their unwavering sobriety to any law enforcement official, at any time of the day or night. Furthermore, there is legislation pending which could severely restrict a driver's right to place a wager.

Until last night, a British man of average build was allowed to consume up to approximately one and one half pints of beer prior to operating a motor vehicle. Also, he was allowed unlimited wagers to be placed upon any sporting event, or event of his choice. This is no longer the case.

Today, if a British motor vehicle operator so much as inhales even a slight odor of beer, whiskey or wine, he is subject to criminal prosecution. The House of Commons has assured citizens that this has nothing to do with the crash of the Euro, and governmental desire to raise revenue.

Although the anti-wagering rule has not yet been implemented, it is being reported that the new plan will most likely end in a compromise, and thereby only restrict a driver's ability to place a wager in that he will be subject to a ninety nine point nine percent gratuity tax by the European Union. This is breaking news. More as it comes.
