The easy, guaranteed & fun way to avoid a drunk driving charge
Outside a local pub, Police noticed a man leaving so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around for a few minutes, with Police observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the man fell into his car. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. He started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night), flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The Police put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over. To his amazement the Breathalyzer indicated no alcohol! Police says: "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the station, this Breathalyzer must be broken." "No, tonight I'm the designated decoy".
