The AFP have pushed out a media release about an accident in Dickson this afternoon in which one of the participants managed a blood alcohol reading of “.315, more than six times the legal limit”.

At 1.20 in the afternoon! There’ll be a story there when he gets to court.

This afternoon (as in Tuesday afternoon)?

That press release is dated the 23rd at the bottom, but at the top it is dated the 10th of May, two weeks old.

No matter, he is still a retard, and it is still amzing he was able to drive that far without driving off the road or having a stroke or something.

…oh yeah, and a Maxalon or Stematil, if you can get your hands on them.

As well as six cups of coffee, half a loaf of vegemite toast and four daytime cold-and-flu tablets.

Mythbusters did a show on whether you can beat the machine. The final verdict was a negative.

The only things that get it out of your system are time and a healthy liver.

10:30am breath tests are largely to catch people who still have alcohol in their system after the night before. The booze doesn’t just disappear while you’re asleep…

Yeah, I recently got RBT’ed on Limestone Ave. at 10 am on a Tuesday on my way to a meeting. I kind of found it amusing at the time, but might be necssary

I bet he was cheating… he had grog in his mouth at the time of blowing… I always used to hate it when people did that down at the Irish club..

All seriousness aside that is pretty bad.. on a tuesday as well

Didn’t this happen a couple of weeks ago? I swear I heard something about a man blowing six times the limit after a collision in Dickson over two weeks ago. Eerie coincidence or just some problem with their press releases?

He clearly likes a liquid lunch.
