– On May 10, a 43-year-old resident lost her driving license. She was driving with a blood alcohol content close to the legal limit, says Justyna Wiszowaty, a spokeswoman for the Jaworzno police.
She has since been banned from driving and the case has been referred to the police criminal division. However, less than a month passed and she sat behind the wheel again. Drunk again.
She was taking her 11-year-old son to school, the boy was taken care of by his grandmother
– A policeman who stopped a woman’s driving license noticed her in a car on a roundabout – says Wiszowaty.
It was June 1, 8.40 am. The woman was driving her Renault Megane. She was driving her 11-year-old son to school. The police officer stopped her and tested her sobriety with a breathalyzer. She was 1.2 per mille.
The 11-year-old’s grandmother was called to the scene and took care of the boy.
The mother will appear in court soon. Driving while intoxicated is punishable by a large fine, a court disqualification from driving and a two-year prison sentence. For driving without a license, in addition to a fine of at least PLN 1,500, there is a threat of a court ban on driving.
– Any amount of alcohol negatively affects our mind, consciousness, concentration, senses, perception of what is happening on the road. Even when we feel good, being under the influence of alcohol we pose a threat on the road – warns Wiszowaty.
