Am I too drunk to drive?

Am I impaired? If you are asking this question then the chances are pretty good that you shouldn't be driving! Pull over and park your car.

A Regina man recently called the RCMP to report himself for being too drunk to drive. Robert Beatty called 911 when he was driving to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and reported himself. The police were impressed.

The courts agreed and a minimum fine was given. The mandatory one-year driving prohibition and a $1,000 fine was the ruling of the judge.

Good for you, Robert! You might have saved more then your own life by taking this step. It's great that the court system gave you a break.

Remember, one drink usually will take a minimum of one hour to work through your system. Your metabolism may slow down this time or even speed it up. Everyone is a bit different. Do not drink and drive!
