And a genuinely hypothetical question - none of this my 'mate' got caught etc but wanted to check the consensus view on the following scenario.
My understand of drink drive laws is, if you are with your vehicle with the keys, whether or not you are actually driving it, you can be charged with drink driving.
This being the case, what would the position be if you're round a friends house and went to your car to fetch something in and the rozzas showed up?
Reason I ask is recently I was round a mates house for a BBQ and was considerably worse for wear but needed my bag from the car as it had medical supplies in that I needed to have with me.
Could I technically have been done had I been unlucky enough to get caught opening my car?
