21 years old has been tested with result of 2,41 per thousand and was speeding in a 50 zone, but will not have to serve a single day in prison because he is a student.

The 21 years old student admitted in Stavanger District Court both that he had driven under influence of alcohol and that he was driving too fast, reported Stavanger Aftenblad.

He was photographed by a speed camera on Revheim in Stavanger at July this year when he was driving 88 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

The judge adds aggravating emphasis that he was drunk and he passed signs while he was driving fast out of the limit.

The sentence was 32 days in prison, but the judge states that the court recommends that the prison sentence shall be served using fetter, “when the accused is a full-time student and will have interruptions in his studies if he must enter the atonement.”

He must also pay 12,500 kroner in fines and cannot drive for the next two years.
