Whiskey Galore

By DeusExMacintosh


A lorry carrying whisky has crashed, causing alcohol and fuel to spill onto a road in the Highlands.

Emergency services were called to the scene on the A95 at about 1415 GMT.

Northern Constabulary said diversions were in place through Skye of Curr and the Dulnain Bridge road until the wreck was cleared.

Meanwhile, emergency services said a driver escaped serious injury after a car came off the road at Spean Bridge and plunged into a river gorge.

    If you were proceeding slowly down the road afterwards, with either windows open or air coming in, it is possible that you would absorb alcohol vapors.
    Pulled up soon after for a breath test (especially if they have “no alcohol for P-platers” rules in the UK), what might happen?

    I worked a few Xmas breaks in the spirit store of a brewery in Sydney.
    In the cellars there were wooden barrels of spirits, mostly rum.
    A guy was sacked for being drunk on the job. His defense onion backed, was that he’d been working in the cellar, so inhailing alcohol fumes.
    The defense was ridiculed as it was “expert” advice that you could not be made drunk by inhalation.
    What thinks you?

    I think you’d be hard-pressed finding a Scotsman who’d leave spilled whiskey long enough for it to evaporate.
