The police christmas drink driving clampdown is now gathering pace.

 So keen are they to arrest drinkl drivers that the police will now pay £1000 to anybody who reports a drink driver.   What concerns me most about this is that the offer only relates to a motoring offence.  No such offer is made to people who report crimes of violence or child abuse , theft or drug dealing.  One cant help but conclude that the police would rather lock up motorists rather than people who commit the most serious crimes


That would explain why most criminal courts are deserted and the traffic prosecution courts are heaving with the weight of police prosecutions for motoring offences.
