Police tell drunk driver to move car then give her fine

A policeman told a woman to park her car although she was drunk. He then took away her driving license.

Susanne R. from Vorarlberg was stopped by the police: "As I had drunk too much in a restaurant a friend drove me home." On their way home, the police stopped the car and the driver was asked to do a breath test.

Suddenly the officer told the woman to move the car to a different place as it blocked the access road to the service station in Hohenems.

"I was talking to him earlier and was obviously drunk", said the 37-year-old woman. A second policeman confirmed that in a hearing.

The woman said that she moved the car five metres away because she would listen to what the police told her to do. Then she also had to do a breath test. As she had an alcohol level of 120 millilitres, she was fined 1,300 Euros and her driving license was withdrawn.

Her lawyer Martin Rützler complained but the complaint was rejected. If the single mother receives legal aid, the Administrative Court will take up the case.
