Going Dutch

‘THE best way to beat the breathalyser is by not drinking before you drive. Another way is to drink so much that you break the machine.

That’s what a 44-year-old Dutch man did when he was pulled over by police in Wormerveer.

When the man breathed in the machine, it initially refused to work before showing out of range. A police doctor had to give the boozed-up offender a blood test and found he was seven times over the limit.

The man, from Krommenie, claimed to have only drunk ”four beers”. He was given a 15-month driving ban, a £600 fine and a two-week suspended jail sentence.’
