Truck driver caught drink driving in Stratford
A truck driver was pulled over in Stratford, Taranaki, early this morning and was breath-tested. He had 334mcg of alcohol per litre of breath. The legal alcohol limit is 250mcg. [The chances that a drunk driver would cause a fatal crash with 334mcg of alcohol per litre of breath is slightly higher than the same driver causing a fatal crash with the “legal alcohol limit” of 250mcg of alcohol per litre of breath!] http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11591793
