They say that lightning never strikes in the same place twice, but maybe this car driver hadn’t ever heard of the expression.

According to Jærbladet, the over 70 year-old man had shared two bottles of whisky and some aquavit with a friend. His blood alcohol content was found to be just short of 0.23% when he was breathalysed by police after having collided at a roundabout.

He was still well over the limit when stopped again in the same car six hours later, although the content had gone down slightly.

The man received a conditional sentence of 45 days, had to pay a 20,000 kroner fine, and his license was suspended for three years.
