The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

More Sensible Advice

Drinking and Driving is a Bad Thing. This blog's advice is not to do it. Ever. It's dangerous and the penalties are heavy.
An even worse idea is to swig from a bottle of beer as you drive along, in view of the crew of a passing police car. A gentleman of Baltic origin did just that the other week, and when stopped proved to have a breath alcohol level of 73ug, as against the legal limit of 35.
