One car, three drivers and a lot of alcohol
Police in The Hague fined three drivers within a few hours on Wednesday night for allegedly drink driving. What made the three unusual was they were all caught driving the same car.
The car was stopped for the first time at 2.30am on the Vondelstraat for a routine check. A breathalyser test indicated the 40-year-old driver from Leidschendam was over the alcohol limit. While the police were issuing a fine, the 43-year-old passenger from The Hague took the driver's place at the wheel and sped off. Police caught up with the car a short time later and the passenger-turned-driver also failed a breathalyser test. He too was fined. READ ON
