Of course - the statistics show what they show, but is there any further breakdown - i.e. Blood/Alcohol levels at any particular incident indicating that it is not just drivers, or pedestrians, at or over any particular limit, but individuals 100%, 200% or whatever over the limit that present the real statistical danger.

I can't prove it, but I fear that in today's new puritanical society where zero everything is the new creed, that moderation in all things is being eschewed in favour of an unenforceable ideal that some stratas of society will never comply with, and also know that they are almost untouchable and untraceable until they actually have that accident, and when they will unashamedly play the victim card.

As a matter of interest - could I even have a Cobra with a curry in Gourock and drive back to my hotel now?
