What goes around comes around

at least for the officer in charge of busting drunk drivers in Eshowe, Zululand. He was trapped in one of the roadblocks he helped to set up to nab drunken offenders. [full story]

I have often said that anyone who drinks and drives likely commits an offense on occasion, even if they are conscientious about all factors concerning their drinking behavior. It is invariably left up to the individual to determine when he has passed that magical line between competent to drive and incompetent to drive. As the comsumption of alcohol impairs one's abilities to make reasoned determinations, it only stands to reason that even the best err on occasion. The above case is a good reference in point.
