    You're leaving the pub, at night. You've had a few but someone who is adamant they'll be driving home has had more than a few. You're headed in opposite directions, and you feel you're not fit to drive.(Alternate means of getting home sorted before you went out.)

    It's not the first time the person has driven home after a night out. They've even managed to hit a stationary car, with a younger driver at the wheel. Passing all the blame onto the younger driver, who'd had one or two, by their own admission.

    So as per the thread title, What Would You Do?

    I would like to think that i would call ths police and have him stopped but as with most things in life, not everything is black and white. It depends on few factors.

    What kind of person is it that you are calling the police about. There are certain people you might not want to p**s off.

    Depends. If it was a good friend I would take the car keys off them and put then in a taxi. If just an acquaintance I would tell them Im calling the police if they get in the car. If i dont know them at all I would simply just call the police.

    I would do the right thing. I'd get a taxi, for myself, one pint in Scotland you are either on or over the limit.

    But I would always do it to his/her face. I would order and pay for a taxi, I would take the keys, and if that was a problem, and they insisted on driving, I'd take out my phone and call the police infront of the person concerned. Regardless if it was a friend or acquaintance. They then have been given the choice of facts. They so far aren't in the car, and haven't broken the law.

    I would rather see some one lose their licence and have it marked for twenty years than attend a funeral!

    I'd drag the other person back into the pub and have some more drinks; afterwards, we'd get a large kebab each and then share a taxi home.
