Signs of an accurate prediction?

If you look back over my posts, I have a fair few predictions hanging in the air, including who’ll win the election, the impending double-dip, the collapse of our electricity generating capacity on the next 3-5 years, and this:

The expected new rules would make it illegal to drive under the influence of prescribed drugs or in excess of a specified drug limit. The present law penalises only drivers whose performance is impaired by illegal drugs.

This opens a Pandora’s box – what prescription drugs could be included in this? Xanax? Diclofenac? Anti-depressants? Is it possible that vast swathes of people who have been driving safely for years, while taking prescribed meds for chronic conditions, could be swept off the road by the stroke of a minister’s pen?

Today, I read this:


So what? Well, have you ever heard this before in a report on motoring misdemeanours?

Police tracked him to an address in Ely and thought he had been drinking. An alcohol test was clear, but traces of an anti-depressant were found.

Creeping, creeping, creeping ahead.
