With 2.2 per thousand, a Tölzer woman sat at the wheel of her car. First she crashed and fled, then a police officer stopped her. Now the woman was on trial.
Bad Tölz/Wolfratshausen – When she rolled her car out of the parking lot at the sports park, a woman from Tölz demolished a metal bollard. Regardless of the damage, the 45-year-old drove on – all the way to Greiling. There she was slowed down by a plainclothes police officer who had followed her from the parking lot. A blood sample taken a little later showed that the woman was traveling with more than two per thousand. Half a year later, she is still very uncomfortable. "I'm ashamed to sit here," said the saleswoman in the hearing before the district court, where she was sentenced to a fine for negligent drunkenness, hit-and-run and intentional drunkenness.
The defendants' memories are fragmentary
She had been bowling with friends, the defendant rummaged up fragments of her memory of that November 5, 2022. Aperol, Havana Club and three small tequila were at least on the drinks voucher. "The five of us had a nice evening. It wasn't planned that it would end like this," the Tölzerin admitted.

However, she could not remember the accident and the trip to Greiling. Her memory was only saved when the police arrived, who drove her to the hospital.
"Small rum noticed": damage to the car in the amount of 8000 euros
"She noticed a small rumble," the officer reported from his conversation with the driver, whose vehicle was clearly visibly damaged. The damage to the car amounted to 8000 euros, plus about 300 euros for the battered bollard. According to the assessment of a medical expert, who attested to the accused a "moderate intoxication", the woman was "not severely impaired" in her ability to understand that night, but her ability to control was considerably reduced.
Twelve months left without a driver's license
Therefore, defense attorney Gerald Jeserer asked for "a lenient sentence" for his client, who had "changed her way of life" since the incident. In addition, since there was hardly any traffic on the road at night, there was "no significant danger".
Judge Helmut Berger sentenced the Tölzerin to a fine of 90 daily rates of 40 euros each, a total of 3600 euros. In addition, the court imposed a driver's license suspension of twelve months, and the license has already been in custody for half a year.
