    It's not about the potential speed that the vehicle does, it's about the fact that he was "drunk in charge of a vehicle". Plus, you cannot say that there is no potential for damage.

    In my previous post, I mentioned a driver coming round a corner to see the drunk weaving along at 5mph. If said driver is coming along at 50mph, and the drunk is weaving, then imagine the damage that the drunk would be the cause of.

    I'm gonna take the last sentence with a huge pinch of salt, as I'm sure that was put in for comic effect!!!!

    A vehicle is a device or structure for transporting persons or things

    You can be charged for being drunk in charge of a vehicle, this could include a wheel-barrow with you passed out friend in it!

    I believe that it also includes a horse ridden as well as driving. Yep just found this see this link, though I'm not sure they can take your licence away as you are done under another act.

    Who had the job in the court/Police station of looking up that law dating from 1872! Or do they have their own in house Google* search
