This snippet of news about two speeding van drivers passing a drink across, mid-carriageway, on the motorway, caught my eye… and made me blink. It’s not exactly ‘dumbest criminals’ territory, but it is pretty dangerous, and pretty conspicuous. Not the sort of thing witnesses are going to forget in a hurry once they’ve seen it. All I can say is, one of those drivers must have been awfully thirsty!
Must admit it’s putting ideas in my head for crime stories, though. Imagine if it wasn’t a drink at all, but smuggled goods… Although thinking you can get away with such a public ‘drop’ in broad daylight with dashboard cameras everywhere might just qualify for ‘dumb criminal’ status after all.
