My wife is attending a drink driving awareness course. Can anyone confirm whether the following is true?

She was told that it is illegal to drink coffee whilst driving but it is OK to drink water. This seems strange. To me, both are technically legal but you could be charged with something like careless driving. The RAC has a web page which seems to back this up.

Generally I don't find this to be much of an issue, if someone pulls in too close in front just slow down for a moment and viola, safe distance restored.

Slow down, safe distance restored, next person moves over in the gap, repeat ad infinitum... if you drive on the M25 a lot, this is a way of life...

Of course it was utter tripe but at least we have piece of mind with the figures of drivers attending courses is greatly increasing and we all have safer roads.
Strangely that isnt what i see on a day to day basis.


Not everyone has been caught and gone on the course yet! rolleyes.gif
