This is the first time we've ever heard this one: a drunk driver in Armagh was caught by police after the car he was driving phoned in the crash.

The PSNI in Craigaven, where the incident occurred said that:

"Some cars these days are pretty clever. Did you know that some can even phone police automatically to let us know you've crashed?! That's a really good safety feature.

"It is however a really bad feature to have if you're a drink driver.

"That's right, you're picking this up correctly - a CAR phoned us to let us know about a crash last night when it turned out the driver was drunk.

"You think you're having a rough weekend? At least your car hasn't touted on you!

"Feel free to phone us if you suspect someone is drink driving. This driver wasn't the only drunk driver caught over the weekend. We do take action, but your help is vital in ridding the road of these potential death drivers."

This is what the 21st century is allll about peeps.
