On the 10th of September 1897, a London cabbie with the name George Smith slammed his taxi into a building and becomes the first person to be arrested for drunk driving. He did plea guilty and was fined 25 shillings.
Police officers did suspect that Smith was drunk because of his behaviour,which resembled the behaviour of a drunk person, and the fact he drove his Taxi into a wall only confirmed this suspicion and also he admitted to it .However if he hadn’t they would have had a problem for w they lacked a scientific way to prove someone was too intoxicated to drive.
