Is this a blip or a trend?

  1. POLICE in Melbourne recorded a higher rate of women drink-driving than men in a weekend blitz.


    Hope none of them were Netriders. Or mothers. Or wives. or........
  2. Well, the overall stats seem to suggest that more women are drinking to excess than men and also that more women are smoking as well.

    Is is something to do with having to put up with US???

  3. Or is it a case of both the male & female got on the turps and the female got shoved into the drivers seat.

    A lot of women seem to forget they don't absorb alcohol as easily as men.

    They keep trying to tell us that the female of the species is the more sensible one but the figures quoted makes me wonder sometimes.

    Oh, and for the record I'm not an alcohol drinker either.
  4. I wonder, too, if a lot of the lady drivers you see with men in the passenger seat are playing chauffeur for their already disqualified males??? Still, that's not excuse for them to line themselves up for the same fate, surely?
