drunk 4X4 driver in court

The court heard that she was found by police

slumped across the steering wheel of her Land Rover Freelander

Had she crashed she would have enjoyed the protection of airbags, a rigid steel safety cage and all the other accessories that allow a reckless driver to kill or maim others at no cost to themselves.

One police officer told the court it was the highest breathalyser reading he had seen in his 14-year career and described how Manaley was so drunk she kept her eyes closed while being questioned.
