A blind and drunk journalist caught driving

The other passenger riding alongside the blind driver –a photographer and owner of the car– was also 'drunk blinded'

A blind French guy, who works as a journalist, was given one month jail sentence and a 500 Euro fine for driving drunk and without a licence putting other people’s life at risk.

It all happened in a not very busy regional road in Nancy, northeast of France, at three in the morning last July 25th, when the gendarmes noticed a car slowly zigzagging along.

The owner of the car, a 52-year-old photographer and friend of the blind driver, stated that he was acting as co-pilot with one hand holding the handbrake and the other on the steering wheel. His license was also suspended for five months.

The driver told the gendarmes that yes, he was blind but argued: "It’s been a long time that I really wanted to do drive, I talked to my friend (the car owner) and he agreed. I’m not trying to excuse myself."

The co-pilot explained: "We let ourselves go by a moment of foolish complicity. He was very happy and I had a hand on the steering wheel and the other one on the handbrake, focusing on the road".

"You were twice above the legal drinking limit. Don’t you think that turns you into a not very reliable coach?", the Court to the co-pilot asked rhetorically.

Moreover, when doing the alcohol test, both turned out positive results, twice above the legal drinking limit.

Just out of curiosity, the thing is that this was not the first time that the blind journalist tested his driving skills: he had already tried out at a racing circuit when with the purpose of writing a feature article illustrated by his photographer friend.
