This past weekend was a relatively safe one on our roads compared to most as APD made only two arrests for Driving Under the Influence. Lucky for us.
I'm reminded of the chilling message the IRA sent to Maggie Thatcher after a lucky last minute change in plans saved her from being blown to bits by one of their more sophisticated time bombs: "You have to be lucky all the time. We only have to be lucky once."
Pleasant thought as we head towards another weekend ...
Early Saturday morning 1:42 AM. Failure to stop/yield in town center tripped up a drunk driver.
