The white Camry. The white Commodore for the parsimonious.

He was sober at the time of the crash but had to run home for some shots of the hard stuff before fronting up to police.
It’s a well known story.

If he reads this you might have given him some ideas on a defence. I mean how could they prove that he didn’t go home and down a few drinks before going to the cops.

If you knew the legislation, you’d know that’s not a defence to drink driving.

“how could they prove that he didn’t go home and down a few drinks before going to the cops.”

That is a seperate offence in itself. In N.S.W. it’s called ‘Willfully alter blood concentration’ and carries a maximum of 18 months. (Of course in the ACT that would translate as a severe finger wagging and a taxpayer funded taxi voucher home, but it is still on the books…)
