You’re unbelievable. Your post was badly written in the first place ie you missed out the point you were trying to make. I questioned if you had been drinking as drinking affects you’re judgment. You posted something pretty bizarre.Supersonic wrote: ↑Thu Jan 21, 2021 8:28 pmRolesboy,rolesyboy wrote: ↑Thu Jan 21, 2021 7:30 pmHave you been drinking too Alan?? You must be really pissed if you think some cock (sorry -grown man) who was over the legal limit deserves to hang on to his driving licence till he wipes somebody out or maims them while on his way to a clay pigeon shoot to represent Ireland.Supersonic wrote: ↑Thu Jan 21, 2021 7:15 pm I’ve a mate who earlier this month was convicted for drink driving coming up to Christmas. He was over the legal limit and lost his drivers licence. He had a large collection of firearms and is a very much respected clay pigeon trainer and rifle coach. The same block represented all Ireland in the world games.
A nicier gentleman you will never find, yes he was over the limit, we have all been to parties I'm sure.
Is there no mercy or leniency anymore?
To quote a mate of mine' where's the justice....
I am baffled that you would make this post
Firstly, I have not been drinking tonight and hope to get a couple of drinks on Saturday all being well. Firstly the point I’ve made is not about drink driving, it is the vindictive way the system is setup to cause further ruthless measures. I’ve already said you take that chance you pay the price. The point I make is why the authorities want to stick the boot in when someone falls by the wayside which is not nice to witness.
I’m not baffled in any way about making this post, as a matter of interest; I’m baffled what your real name is?
Drinking particularly at the levels where you get convicted of drink driving tends to make it more difficult to control a car (or a firearm) for that matter. I would imagine the courts viewed this risk in a similar way with your mate
The system isn’t vindictive. It’s there to prevent harm injury or any number of other consequences to you’re lovely mate and the rest of us.
The price your mate paid is fair on both counts. I don’t think authorities want to stick the boot in. They could probably do without the aggravation that goes with it. They are simply upholding the law. In this example your lovely mate didn’t.
I was the one that was baffled by your making the post. Judging by the response it would appear everybody else was too.
I’m still baffled
