Police arrive, breathalyse him and he fails.
When they took a second sample at the nick WHEN AN INTERPRETER ARRIVED 2 HOURS LATER he was just under the limit.

This guy was driving on his Polish licence, and had NO INSURANCE. When I spoke to the copper that nicked him, he told me he could only be charged for the insurance offence and would probably get a 100 fine, plus 6 penalty points IF HE EVER APPLIES FOR A BRITISH LICENCE !!

My van was off the road (no work for me) for a week, cost 150 excess on the insurance policy, and wiped out 3 years no claims - on my Van, my Laguna and my Chrysler.
You can see why they do it cheap car 12 points still on the license no insurance no mot and still come out of court with a few points on the license and 100 fine thats what you call cheep insurance.
