Re: Serious Traffic Hazard

I forsee the newer Tescos increasing business a lot more, me I will go the on the Ring Road to the NBL section and turn into that Tescos, rather than risk the mayhem, at this junction.

Re: Traffic check points

Correct it detects iof there is any alcohol in your residual breath, if it detects, then a further test will be carried out. However as it is not exactly a scientific method I am sure they will be errors, more so if the officer has also been imbibing then results will at best be iffy.
