Traffic laws in Brittain are about to receive a major face-lift. Under continuous strain from the tax-paying public, the government has for a change, done some research before implementing a rule which no-one usually follows in any case.
On a recent survey of road accidents it has come to light, that in accidents involving drinking and driving, only about 2% of the drunk people involved in the accidents needed any medical treatment. And by medical treatment, we mean that the drunk guy asked for an asprin to fend off his oncoming hang-over. All this while 72% of the sober people in these accidents end up either dead or in hospital.
In a stroke of absolute common sense, the government reversed the drinking and driving law, instead opting for a, before I leave, two shots and a cola please, approach.
In a statement by the Transport Minister, he said that the British Government will bring the hammer down on all sober people on our streets. In future, all driver are required to have a alcohol-blood reading of at least 0.03 or otherwise be in line for a hefty fine.
Football fans all over welcomed the ruling, with one extremely alcohol besotted person in particular saying, 'This is a huge stride forward for our country, we will show the world that we are at the...'
Unfortunately he couldn't complete the sentence as he accidentally veered into an oncoming bus. All in all we are on the edge of our seats to see how the government will strive further ahead.
