“Tough weekend”: Drunk driver alerts the police himself

2024-02-27T12:33:39.446Z

Highlights: In Great Britain the police received an unusual call. There was a drunk driver at the end of the line - he wanted to turn himself in. A case like this “doesn’t happen every day,” the police wrote on Facebook. From summer 2024, new EU vehicles must have an interface for the easy integration of so-called alcohol interlocks. The “test device” itself is not yet mandatory - however, a supplier recently showed how such an alcohol detector could work in the car.

In Great Britain the police received an unusual call.

There was a drunk driver at the end of the line - he wanted to turn himself in.

Many bad accidents still happen under the influence of alcohol.

But perhaps in the not too distant future it will no longer be possible to start the car while drunk.

From summer 2024, new EU vehicles must have an interface for the easy integration of so-called alcohol interlocks.

The “test device” itself is not yet mandatory - however, a supplier recently showed how such an alcohol detector could work in the car.

How long it will take until mandatory installation is currently uncertain.

Now an unusual incident occurred in Great Britain: a drunk driver turned himself in.

52-year-old driver reports to the police: he was “driving drunk”

Sometimes drunk driving goes smoothly, like the case of a drunk driver who slept off his intoxication in the car wash.

An incident in the Osnabrück district shows how dangerous driving with a blood alcohol limit can be, in which a dashcam captured a drunk driver driving in a serpentine line on video.

Drunk drivers are rarely sensible, as is the case with a 52-year-old from Rochdale in Great Britain.

Of course it would have been better if he hadn't started at all with his level.

Shortly before 12 p.m. the phone rang at the police station there.

On the other end of the line there was a man who explained that he was “driving drunk” and didn’t know what he was doing.

The driver explained to the officer at the operations center that he had had a “tough weekend.”

Police immediately send patrol: drunk driver had around 2.5 per mille

A patrol was immediately sent to the caller - and the breath alcohol test also showed how “hard” the driver's weekend was.

In Great Britain the alcohol limit is 0.8.

But the man had a blood alcohol level of around 2.5 per mille.

Although he had “voluntarily” reported himself to the officers, the drunk driver was temporarily taken into custody.

A case like this “doesn’t happen every day,” the police wrote on Facebook.

In Germany, drivers are usually threatened with a medical-psychological examination - MPU for short - after extreme alcohol driving with a alcohol content of more than 1.6 per mille.

What many people don't know is that if you sit in a car with a drunk driver, the passenger can also be held liable in the event of an accident.
