Sister's BF drinking while driving

My sister has been seeing someone for about two months. Seems like a nice enough guy.

Last month he picked me up from work and we (inc. my sister) drove about two hours to visit a relative. Throughout the journey, he was sipping on beer. This was the first time I'd been in his car and there were empty beer bottles in the back.

Last night sis and him had an argument, and it turns out he'd driven to the off license to get some beers, sat in his car and drank them, then drove home. I'm really bloody cross at his selfishness. Sister said he didn't seem drunk when he got home but was tipsy.

WIBU to give his info to the police anon?

Yanbu to report this.

Not sure what they can do unless he is doing it at the time you report and have his license plate. I may be wrong, maybe they keep his license on file and it flags on their cameras. I genuinely don't know.

Honestly, though, I wouldn't have gone anywhere in a car with someone who was drinking while they drove. It's not like you didn't know.

Why would you drive for two hours with someone drinking? I'd have got out of the car and reported Asaph

Not sure if my post wasn't very clear but I didn't know Davos. It was the first time I'd been in his car so had no idea that it's something he does.

But you said he was sipping on beer while driving, was he hiding it in another can?

I would have stopped him and got out! What a catch he is, is your sister going to wait until he is actually mortal before she will not get in the car? Just one drink affects your reactions to things when driving, there is plenty of evidence to prove this.

Tell your sister to never get in the car with him, how will she know how much he has drunk first if he is drinking on the sly. She needs to protect herself.

I would also report him, before he kills somebody.

he was sipping beer trough out yen journey and there was beer bottles in the back. I am confused to how you didn't know when it was happening in front of you.

Sounds like a drinking problem. And takes me back to my uni days where by we were irresponsible and stupid and drank on long car trips for weekends away - but there was always a 100 mile rule for the driver (no beer before 100 miles, and then after that 1 beer every 100 miles).

Your sisters got a proper lovely guy in him hasn't she

There is no excuse to be sipping on beer while driving or drinking God knows how many cans at the off licence ( what a class act) then driving home, why should somebody end up hurt or dead like my friend when his car hits them just because he is a selfish fucking arsehole!

You could report, but I don't know if they will do anything as its days after the event and can't prove he was drink driving
