Good.

Said customer deserves to be rewarded from public funds.

There's NO excuse for drinking and then driving. As before when this has arisen here on JB it's very easy.

If you are going out for a drink, fine, but either walk or make alternative transport arrangements ....such as getting a friend to drive, something called a taxi perhaps ? or even something called a bus.

Just don't put your own, and everybody else whom you might encounter between the pub / venue and your destination, life at risk by being one arrogant, selfish moron who thinks it's fine to have a drink.... then drive.

Before his departure from the pub, it would seem Tarrant didn't have a friend he could phone.
