DRINK driving is treated as a serious offence in Australia and the amount of random breath tests carried out by police means there’s a high chance of getting caught if you’re behind the wheel of a car after a few alcoholic drinks.
American golfer Tiger Woods, among the most successful sportspeople of all time, is the latest famous person to be charged with DUI, although he denies driving under the influence of alcohol.
“I understand the severity of what I did and take full responsibility for my actions,” said Woods, who underwent a fourth operation on his back in April and cannot yet play competitive golf.
“I didn’t realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.
“I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and fans. I expect more from myself too.”
