A DRIVER who flipped his car while heading along Birchwood Way was found to be almost three times over the limit.

Manchester man Arthur Opulskis was spotted by a driver, going in the opposite direction, clipping the kerb before the car turned over on December 8 at 9.20pm.

The 28-year-old, who moved to England six years ago, was found with 98mg of alcohol in his system with the legal limit being 35mg.

Halton Magistrates heard on Thursday he told officers he had an argument with his wife before getting into the car.

Opulskis was ordered to complete a 12-month community order, 150 hours unpaid work and has been banned from driving for 26 months.

Yet another Alcoholic Beverage related incident in our local Borough. Again I venture to attest that it's got to stop! The car in such instances, undeniably becomes a lethal weapon. Where was the ban on him drinking? And there are reasonable and reliable checks for this to happen before anyone chips in with yet more denial and comments that diminish the potentially serious actions of those who overindulge, and are specifically unable to control themselves!

Ban on him drinking? There goes the Ayatollah about the "demon drink". Let's face it, you would have nobody drink at all - except altar wine I suppose (bread* and altar irn-bru anyone?)

Unless you're gluten intolerant alongside all the other intolerances, your holiness.
