Last night at 1am I got a call from my daughters friend asking if I could pick her and 3 of her friends up and drive them home. She was on Prest road , in the country, driving home when she was stopped by the police. She is driving on an N , her boyfriends car, so she had to many people in the vehicle, the passengers had been drinking enough that you could smell the booze but the driver did not blow a yellow on the little device the police made her blow in.
They gave her a 12 hour suspension and towed the vehicle but it can be picked up tomorrow. They could have impounded the car for 30 days and given her 3 tickets. The officers laid out the details of what he could have done, explained that she was not insured with that many passengers and that the car could be impounded for 30 days at a cost of 600.00. The other kids realized they had some responsibility not to ride that many people with an person on an N. Maybe not a big deal but he could have been a real jerk about it but he came across very calm and reasonable and it worked.
