Good to see Essex police sending one of their Revenue raising cars into Burnham.. Shame they dont send them more often to sort out the Illegal parking on that bend, But I suppose there is more money to be made having two officers sitting in a car with a speed gun in Althorne..

Not sure what drink driving has to do with parking??

Having seen someone killed by a drunk driver (mown down on a pedestrian crossing) there is no excuse for drink driving. The fact that the drink driver in question attempted to run off - she clearly knew she had done wrong.
