News of the Weird
By Chuck Shepherd, Universal Press
The Kerry, Ireland, county council voted in January to let some people drive drunk. The councilors reasoned that in the county's isolated regions, some seniors live alone and need the camaraderie of the pub, but fear a DUI arrest on the way home. The councilors thus empowered police to issue DUI permits to those targeted drivers. Besides, reasoned the councilors, the area is so sparsely populated that such drivers never encounter anyone else on the road at night. (The councilors' beneficence might also have been influenced, reported BBC News, by the fact that "several" of the five voting "yea" own pubs.)
