Man reports a drink-driver, forgets he's drink-driving himself...
The most mundane road in the UK, the M1, motorway was the scene of some pure comedy gold when two drivers (whom for purposes of this article I will call dumb and dumber) had a little crash just off Junction 25.
Nobody was injured and even the cars escaped practically unscathed. However, 'Dumber' thought that 'Dumb' who crashed into his car was drunk and so decided to bring in the Police. The right thing to do, right?
The Blues and Twos arrived on the scene shortly after, and tested 'Dumb' and determined he was indeed under the influence. Hence we call him 'Dumb'. Then the vigilant officers decided to test 'Dumber' who called them in the first place – and he gets his nickname because as it turned out he was drunk too!
Thankfully for everyone else, both the 46-year old Peugeot 308 driver and the 60-year-old Vauxhall Agila driver were arrested and charged with driving over the limit.
One of the two men 'scored' 78 and the other 40 on the Breathalyzer test. The legal limit in the UK is set at 35 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres.
Sadly (for our amusement) the Police didn't say which one was responsible for making the 999 call, so we are going have to guess who drove what. Was it the Peugeot man having a few too many glasses of Red Bordeaux or the Vauxhall man having a few too many pints of Stella?
