Watching actuality TV series such as "Police Interceptors", "Cops With Cameras", "Road Wars" etc, so many times have I seen drivers - men and women - after failing the roadside breathalyser test, arrested then taken to the station for the court-admissible evidential breath tests: which after reading over the legal '35' limit are charged with drunk driving.
And so many times have I asked the question: 'What is it going to take for someone to be banned from driving permanently?!'.
Stone cold sober was a certain American in the 1960s when that person drove AC Cobras at 180+ MPH on the M1 here in Britain; at the time there were no speed limits, and in the early morning was very little traffic on the roads: even less then than now. The police saw what he was doing, but could legally do nothing.
But they brought this to the attention of the then Transport Minister, who raised the issue in the House of Commons, MPs debated & voted on such, and put on the statute book the law which ensures the 70 MPH speed limit on Britain's motorways.
What that American did - and since - then resulted in said police officers having to do less & less the unenviable task of having to knock on peoples' doors to tell them that their loved one(s) wouldn't be coming back home. Speed Kills: and reducing such Kills Speed, therefore saving lives.
That American - a man - they have to thank? Carroll Shelby.
All those families here in Britain as a result of what an American: and therefore said Labour Transport Minister did - a woman: Barbara Castle - say 'You're Welcome'.
Barbara Castle also made wearing seatbelts compulsory: and the Breathalyser for the police, and the power to administer & arrest based on the results of such.
