    Not exactly news, but presumably it's still going on and I've just stumbled across the adverts. I've no idea what the horrific mess of an acronym they use means, but the cops have made some short adverts to scare people off drink driving - how you can be caught, and what the consequences are.

    However, I can't find on their channel anything describing the proper dangers of drink driving, i.e. the justification for the cops clamping down on people. Is this right? It's the difference between "This is the law. Obey or be clobbered!" and "This is dangerous. Don't do it or we'll make you not do it!".

    Also, can anyone get through the below video without cringing or laughing?



    The 'acting' aside, how is an ignition blowy thing a good idea? Initially I thought he was being a responsible driver by testing he was below the limit and was confused as to why he was being portrayed negatively (I had decided to kind of ignore the audio), but then I realised it was so that he had to be sober so his car could start. However, surely he could get some random (or his lady friend) to blow in it?

    "I really blew it" :rofl:
