INFO DRUNKEN DRIVING REPORT. Evening Post, 16 Apr 1926. Blenheim. Frederick Broadley Farmar was fined £10 and costs at the Picton Court for being drunk whilst in charge of a motor car. Farmar drove the car from Blenheim to the Picton Wharf, mistook the turning, and found himself on the railway line, with a backing train coming along the metals. A serious accident was averted by Farmar slewing the car off the line into a fence, where it was found by the police. Counsel pleaded for leniency, saying that the accused was well and favorably known throughout Marlborough. On the day of the accident he met an old friend, and had some drink. If Farmar's license was taken away it would affect his business activities. The Magistrate said that probably publicity would be a greater punishment than a fine or disqualification, and he would not deprive the accused of his license. (EveningPosPP 16Apr1926 p.8).
