Drinking and Driving -- Designated Decoys

Something that came into the inbox...

Drinking & Driving... THIS is absolutely brilliant!

Only an Aussie could pull this one off!

A true story from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Recently a
routine police patrol parked outside a local neighbourhood tavern.
Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so
intoxicated that he could barely walk.

The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, With the officer
quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and Trying his keys on
five vehicles, the man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He was
there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove
off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine
dry night), flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched
on the lights.

He moved the vehicle forward a few cm, reversed a little and then remained stationary
for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left.

At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The police
officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the
flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyser test.

To his amazement the breathalyser indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication.

The police officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station -
this breathalyser equipment must be broken."

"I doubt it," said the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy".
