You would have to be drunk to drive a Twingo, one of the worst French cars produced and that’s say something.

Why don’t people learn. Drink driving is extremely selfish, stupid and dangerous. Thank God no other innocent motorists were involved.

It would make a big difference to some if the insurance company refused to pay out if the driver is convicted of D/D….

That is exactly what has happened in a case where I was a victim. My damages were paid but the drunk drivers insurance company declared her policy void and will be taking her to court for the amount they paid me. Don’t expect they will pay for the car either!
