Hard-hitting poll by the original pollster to show
us how it's all done.



Yes, but not since driving Alfas.

yes i did when I was younger and more stupid I did a couple of times. Not massively over but certainly over the limit. I'm not proud and would never do it now.

Yes. And wrecking a couple of cars in the process. No injuries though (except that one was an Alfa )

No since 28 Apr 92.

I imagine that I've done this is the past. Not recently though, if I'm having a skinful I make sure i don't have to drive.

Last year, local 'fiesta', loads of vino, got pretty hammered, went home, got up early next morning for work, really dizzy, feeling a bit sloshed still and thinking I hope I don't get breath tested....

5 minutes later I get to blow down a machine the nice Guardia Civil traffic cop shoved in my face. First time in my life!! Negative result which kind of made my day seeing as I honestly thought I was going to get the book thrown at me. I think if they had done a blood test the result would have been very different...

164 V6 24v "Zender Alfa Sport"

Past glories: Sud 1.5ti, Alfetta GTV, GTV6, 33 1.5ti, 33 1.7ie, 164 3.0 V6, 164 3.0 V6, GTV 1.8TS, 156 1.6 TS, 159 2.4 JTDm QTronic.

Voted yes. Never driven directly after a session, but I have driven the morning after when I shouldn't have. I haven't done it since my late teens though.

Back in NZ they used to 'cone off' a section of road and breath test every single car that came down it. Consequently I had to 'blow the bag' eight times in two years. It happened so often that you would never even consider drunk driving.

However I do worry about 'morning after' drunk driving. I swear my ability to metabolise alcohol has deteriorated, and now I worry about 'afternoon after' or even 'evening after' drunk driving . I always try to leave driving as late as possible if I've had a few shandies the night before...
