    Still no excuse though, apparently he was veering towards parked cars and he had vomited.

    Or just an idiot who shouldn't drive his car to a restaurant/bar/pub where he'll probably get drunk.

    Yep not excusing him, just saying we shouldn’t get carried away with hyperbole, he obviously wasn’t fit to drive but at least (and that’s still no excuse) he appeared to be driving over cautiously

    Let’s stop with the preaching lads, I’d be very confident to bet that the majority of people here with a licence have drunk driven at least once in their lives

    I think his time is done with the French squad. With all his blunders, its amazing they even qualified, let alone managed to win the final, where even then he fumbled another. He's no better than Karius and Mignolet is better (@Pagnell).

    It's quite weird how noone on the entire internet seems to have made the mistake to ever drive drunk, too fast, high, tired, without glasses, while texting, ...


    Noone is defending Lloris either but he made a mistake, a very poor one, and luckily enough nothing bad happened and he got a £50k fine and a 20 month driving ban. He also got a £300k fine from the club from what I understand.
    I'm not sure how big driving fines are in the UK but in Belgium a 20 month ban is only given to repeat offenders, so his punishment isn't nothing at least. Wish they would also give "famous" people some form of community service in those cases, at least something good can come from that.

    3 things wrong with this. 1st, he's Italian. 2nd, he retired and 3rd, you spelt his name wrong. Though I'm willing to accept that as a typo.

    Well, Ill give drunk drivers one thing... Atleast they are attempting to look at the road. As a pedestrian in a large city, cellphone users scare me more and are way more common. Literally every 30 seconds in their own little world.

    One offense should be a massive fine and a permanent criminal record. Twice and youre done driving for life. Sorry, game over.

    I worked with a guy who had FOUR dui's and got his license back. Its insane.

    People on their phones is a massive problem where I am, if I’m sitting in traffic sometimes I’ll watch the cars drive past me and have a look at the driver, I’d say something like 1 in 4 have their head literally facing their lap

    Maybe you should worry about your own pathetic life.

    If you mean had a drink and then drive, then absolutely, yes. But not “drunk driven” - I think that’s a pretty ridiculous assumption.

    I’ve had what has always been accepted to be the legal limit - 2 pints - but never have I been 2 and a half times the limit, driving unnecessarily slowly, having thrown up in my own car.

    I think the point @PalacePalace i trying to make is that EVERY person who is caught over the limit or doing something classed as dangerous driving should always be immediatly sacked by their employer without notice or severance pay of any type.
    This should be in addition, to points, removal of lisence and any fine required by legislation

    I'm sure we can all get behind this .... :rolleyes

    I think the death penalty would suffice.

    Does that make it OK then?

    For the record I haven't and never will. Such a scummy thing to do.

    Never said it’s okay, just think it’s tedious the amount of people feigning outrage on here when a good portion of them would have done it at some point themselves

    The dude made a mistake, luckily it didn't cause anyone harm, not sure why it needs to go any further than the punishments he has already got, i.e. fines and driving ban.

    From my own life experiences, I’m down pubs/bars/clubs a fair amount and plenty of people will drive home when they should know better

    That point also equally applies to you
