    Was feeling a bit worse for wear Sunday morning and the wife had called wanting me to give her a hand with the horses. On my way I ducked in at the petrol station to grab a can of Relentless.

    As I walked across the forecourt a copper was looking at me funny as I took a couple of gulps on my way back to the car. As I pulled out of the petrol station he whipped straight out behind me and put his fairy lights on. I assumed he had clocked my German front plate.

    He comes up to my window and asks me to step out of the car and had a right strop on. I thought it was a bit excessive for a slightly dodgy number plate. He asks if I knew why I had been stopped. I thought "numberplate" but said "no officer". He snaps "drinking beer then getting in my car and driving away".

    I got the can and handed it to him and pointed out it's an energy drink. He studied the can before looking at me very sheepishly and said "I do apologise it looked like a beer can" and sent me on my way. :yahoo:

    LOL....strange thing is I saw a group of lads this morning driving on the motorway, literally drinking and driving and it looked like a can of cider, it was only when they pulled up next to me when we got off the motorway that i saw it was a can of relentless!!

    I think they have made the can like that on purpose!!

    Clever Dicks.....good one for getting one over on the copper

    lol nice one but if that was up here he would of done you any way for drinking and driving as you shouldnt have an open can of anything when driving and if your the only one in the car you cant exactly blame your passenger to get away with it, they are tossers up here!

    So what is wrong with drinking one can of beer and getting into your car? Or even drinking a single can whilst driving for that matter? Obviously it's not to be condoned, but is it actually illegal then?

    Drinking alcohol whilst driving is not 'technically' illegal as long as your blood alcohol limit remains under the legal limit. However swigging from a can 'could' mean you are not in proper control of the vehicle and leave you open for driving without due care and attention.

    Likewise smoking, sneezing, blowing your nose, scratching your balls etc etc
    What about all the Nissan/Honda drivers out there who aren't in proper control of their vehicles even with two hands on the wheel?

    Sneezing is exempt as it classified as 'involuntary' ;)

    I saw 2 guys drinking that on their morning teabreak and on first viewing it looked like alcohol.

    There was a woman who got done a year or so ago for eating an apple while driving, re drinking, makes you wonder why the fit cup-holders in cars.
