One of the B3ta team danced on stage at the Brixton Academy dressed as an enormous white rabbit, and lived to tell the tale. Confess the stuff – good or bad - you've done anonymously.

A couple of years ago, one of my friends was a total fuckwit.
He was drinking from 6am until 11pm on a weekend, every weekend, without fail. But he was also driving home every night from the bar. He got into a few accidents, hit and run sorts, but everyone was too ambivelant to bother calling the cops on him when he was leaving the bar.

Don't get me wrong, I've gotten a DUI myself which I'm not proud of, but as has been proved many a time I learned my lesson from that one to the extent my car has been towed from the bar parking lot as I chose to get a cab home instead of driving. That kind of thing. And I choose to be designated driver on girls nights out so I know that we're all safe.

One night, this friend was totally fucked up. Couldn't walk straight, couldn't stand straight. Turns out he'd been on a 3 day bender and not even bothered going into work or calling in sick.
That night in the bar, as he's getting ready to leave, I called the cops with his license plate number and the direction I knew he'd be going. His tags (registration) were also expired, giving the cops the reason to pull him over (in California, you cannot get pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving unless it's at a checkpoint). He got pulled over for expired tags, charged with DUI and then resisted arrest and swung at the officer. He got the choice of 30 days in jail, or 90 days in an alcohol rehab program. He took the rehab and has now just celebrated two years of sobriety.

Nobody knows it was me, and the friend was FURIOUS when a few of us visited him in rehab and wanting to know who it was (the cops told him there'd been a phone call, but they're obligated to keep it anonymous). I'm still never going to tell him it was me, nowadays he says it was his guardian angel.
And since then, a few friends from the bar no longer drink and drive, just in case.

no. A reformed smoker, maybe
but I could have killed someone drinking & driving, as could many of my friends. I learned my lesson, he needed to learn his the way I did. Consequently, I got about 10 drunk drivers off the road

What are 'tags'?
and also, how do Californian bars compare to pubs in the 'Old Town' (pick any, they're all ace, except Mint. Mint is shit)

I was quite expecting a reply like this.

You did the right thing, any retard can see that.
Well done.

This is either really bad trolling.
Or, you're an idiot.

I would guess both.

Quite a brave thing to do
Therefore you get clicks.

"in California, you cannot get pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving unless it's at a checkpoint"
Really? Surely you’re not serious. So even if somebody if clearly drunk out of their mind, swerving all over the place, the police can’t do anything until the person passes a special place in the road?

Oh and yeah good work. I’d have called the cops the first time he did it though, even if it were my own brother. People who drink drive and utter cunts.

I'd say they were driving dangerously in that case.

If you're swerving all over the road,
you can get pulled over for dangerous driving. But you cannot get pulled over on the assumption you've been drinking..
The cops do DUI checkpoints about once a week in various areas locally (as well as throughout the state) and that's how they bag most drunk drivers.

I'd have grassed him up too
and told him I'd done it.

Over here D&D gets an automatic ban, a fine and the licence endorsed. Very costly indeed, for several years afterwards.
Cheaper than a funeral though.
