How-do-you-know? As far as I know, in Germany you can do anything with
the car but not put the key into the ignition lock when you're drunk.
And drunk is 0.5 thousandth in the meantime.
When I think of my younger days *oh my* I often laid on the
passenger's seat sleeping happily after a few beers on a party,
snoring in the sleeping-bag and all windows fogged up. I think this is
less dangerous than walking home.
I'll have a look at my mother's BGB at the weekend...
