Don’t Drink Drive, you could lose your home

My neighbour was a middle-aged builder who bought an old oast house and he put all his hard work into making his home a nice place and showed off to  the neighbours. After three years of working on it, he was caught drink driving by Kent Police and he was banned for several months.

His wife didn’t work so he was the main breadwinner. Without being able to drive for his work, he fell behind with the mortgage payments. Clearly this created problems at home, and his relationship fell apart and he divorced. A few months after this, his home he worked so hard on, was sold and he moved away from the area. And there of course is the embarrassment as all his neighbours knew what happened as an article appeared in the local paper that he was a drink driver.

All because he chose to drink and drive.
