Quite agree - drink and driving should never mix. Easy for me because I hardly ever drink anyway. And tonight I am doing "taxi duty" for daughter ---- which involves a near 1 hour drive there and back to take them. There will - sigh - eventually be a phone call and another 1 hour drive each way to pick them up. Never mind, it is for family.

So people can avoid the place because who wants to be held up for half hour or so when there trying to earn a living or trying to get to work or home from work

I hear what you're saying Workingclasshero, but to paraphrase the philosopher Jeremy Bentham, " It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong " and surely it is right to greatest number of people to try to get these potential killers off our roads.

They're usually there every week, catching speeders coming off the tunnel exit flyover. They breathalyze anyone doing over 40.

Its not so much about telling them where they are but a warning not to D and D. By the time anyone reads the post the police will be targeting somewhere else. Better to deter --may save a life

Some drunken sod drove into the side of our friends daughters car around midday sunday. She is now in arrowe park with a broken pelvis and broken bones in her neck and being taken to walton hospital. She was only married in september..just hope shes not going to be paralysed. Her poor mum only came out of hospital in august after spending a year there with viral encephalitis. She too is wheelchair bound. Cant believe the troubles some families go through.

Thats dreadful. Poor family. As you say fish, some people seem to have a disproportionate amount of bad health and luck. Do hope they find she is not as damaged as they think.

Really hoping your family friends can start the New Year on a better footing. Very unfair, when one family seems to get everything thrown at them.
Good wishes to all.
