“Mom was riding a scooter and hit a fence” – this was the report received by police officers from Łomża (Podlaskie Voivodeship). At the scene they found a 47-year-old woman and her 23-year-old son. They both had nearly one and a half per mille of alcohol in their bodies. It turned out that in this condition the son was teaching his mother how to ride a scooter.
