Only way I survive is to kick in the cruise control so that I dont accidentally drift above the speed limit and get stung by a camera...

I for one know loads of people who would drink and drive if it were legal.

Get real...
The deaths have been cut but the number of offenders has increased,it's certinally not down to an increase in policing, so work it out.
Hard or Soft it's never BIG enough

Going back to a previous point of falling asleep at the wheel, unless its happened to you, you'll never truly know how fast it is. As sleep researches have found falling asleep with the emphasis on falling is pretty quick. Add drink and you are sailing close to the wind.

New boat is here, very happy!
