Over 4 times the limit, I am surprised he could walk let alone ride a moped.

isn't it odd that all those caught drink-driving got different sentences. surely, regardless of amount over the limit, there should be a standard sentence. for example, minimum fine of £500, plus minimum ban of 2 years. if people knew the consequences, they may, just may, think twice. the same goes for no insurance, the fine should be 10 times the premium that they would have to pay.
