Man being breathalysed by police

It is common knowledge that you should not drink and drive as it is against the law. But recently in Southampton, a student taking his driving lessons was caught drink driving with his instructor! Both the instructor and driver blew 100+ when the police breathalysed them both after there was a call about a road traffic accident. The legal limit to drink before driving is just 35mg of alcohol, which is equivalent to one shot of whiskey and nothing else. The student was released with no charge, whilst the instructor will appear in front of the courts at a later date.
