    Driving drunk is still s ‘sport’ in Bermuda. When will people come in line with developed countries. I say this (before anyone gets upset), cos if we still consider it a ‘sport’ then we are clearly not developed enough.

    I remember back in the day I couldn’t get out of town after a few bumpers without being stopped by the man. Now kids (loud ass bikes) and even gramps (drunk driving)is doing whatever the hell he likes with no consideration for other road users. Another road user stopped the car. Are you kidding me!? Step it up BDA Police!!

      Well I remember back in the day when you could ask a Police officer to take you home if you had too much to drink and they would, when you could pull over to the side of the road and sleep it off without being arrested, etc. But now its all about the almighty dollar.
