Headline Of The Year: Pregnant 14-Year-Old Six Times Over Drink Drive Limit

by | 6th, February 2009

BRACE yourselves for the tabloid headline of the year: “Pregnant 14-year-old six times over drink drive limit.”

Insert the word “immigrant” or “sex worker” and you have the perfect media storm.

A pregnant 14-year-old driver was allegedly six times over the legal alcohol limit when she was pulled over in Whangarei, New Zealand.

Acting Sergeant Kevin Crawford said the girl, who was four months pregnant, was stopped after her driving caught police attention. She allegedly gave a false name and had difficulty spelling it.

She was forbidden to drive and taken to Whangarei police station, where she recorded a breath-alcohol level of 828mcg. The legal limit for drivers under 20 is 150mcg and driving licences are not issued to people under 15.

Especially those that are pissed…
