Slap on wrist for city’s JPS

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

IT is no won­der that the driv­ing in Peter­bor­ough is so ap­palling when a ha­bit­ual drunk-driver gets a slap on the wrist. What world do our JPS live in? Mr Mal­lett was very drunk and it took three peo­ple to re­strain him.

He has been caught drink-driv­ing five times, so good­ness knows how fre­quently he drinks and drives.

He is a men­ace to the rest of the peo­ple on the road. Yet he does not get jailed. He merely gets his li­cence re­voked for four years and told to do Com­mu­nity Ser­vice.

If I was his em­ployer, I would be check­ing that he is sober when he ar­rives for work. You do not want a drunk loose in a ware­house any more than you do loose on the roads.
