Irish Town First To Legalize Drinking and Driving

Welp, we never saw this coming, but the fact that the Irish were the first isn’t surprising.

The Irish town of Kilgarvan passed a law this winter that allows specific members of its community to drink and drive. A local pub owner and politician, Danny Healy-Rae says the motion allows people who live in country areas to have a few beers before they drive home.

The story featured in the New York Times, explains the motion called on the minister for justice to allow the police the discretion “to issue permits to people living in rural isolated areas to allow them to drive home from their nearest pub after having two or three drinks on little-used roads driving at very low speeds.”

We will never see that here the country that says a .08 limit is fair. By the way, if you do the math, that is one and one half of a beer.
