Default OT: Driving and Drinking!

Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a local neighborhood bar.
Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so
intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking
lot for a few minutes with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed
an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed
to find his own car, which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as
a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started
the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a dry night), flicked the
hazard flasher on and off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights.
He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then
remained stationary for a few more minutes as more patrons left in their
vehicles. At last he pulled out of the parking
lot and started to drive slowly down the street. The police officer, having
patiently waited all this time, now started up his patrol car, put on the
flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a
breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence
of the man having consumed alcohol at all! Dumbfounded, the officer said
"I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station, this
breathalyzer equipment must be broken." "I doubt it," said the man,
"Tonight I'm the designated decoy.

Not only a very funny joke, but a damn good idea as well.

I'll have to remember that as there is roomer that the wife of a local FHP hangs around bars on the weekends and sometimes will follow a car while speaking with her husband on his cell phone giving a location. BTW she is the local President of MADD.

I don't think that i a funny joke at all. None of us should be joking about people drinking and driving seeing how someone dies every 15 minutes from a car accident involving someone who was drinking.
