    From the State where drink driving is considered a sport, comes a true
    story from Carrick-on-drinking Ireland.

    Recently a routine Gardai patrol parked outside a local neighbourhood
    tavern.
    Late in the evening the Garda noticed a man leaving the bar so
    intoxicated that he could barely walk.
    The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the Garda
    quietly observing.

    After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the
    man managed to find his car which he fell into.
    He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar
    and drove off.

    Finally 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 a few cm, 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 Garda, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the
    patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and
    carried out a Breathalyzer test.

    To his amazement theBreathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having
    consumed alcohol at all!

    Dumbfounded, the Garda said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the
    Police station this Breathalyzer equipment must be broken."

    "I doubt it," said the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy".


    True story...
