A week or so before the offence became endorseable a driver was seen by a police patrol to be using his mobile phone. They pulled him over, and he was apologetic, saying that he had put the phone down straight away, and he would never do it again. "Never mind that" said the PC. "I can smell alcohol on your breath. Have you had a drink?". The answer was yes, the reading was over 50, the fine was £400 and the ban was 12 months.
