In Australia, we have random breath testing. Some of these involve huge police roadblocks that stop entire freeways, testing thousands of people in a night. Up until the age of 22 in most states a blood alcohol level of 0.00 is enforced and after that it is 0.05.

This allows us to have a drink or two when we go out; any more than that and you are risking you're licence. Needless to say, not many people drink and drive; particularly in my generation.

Melbourne is a wonderful city and this video goes part of the way to do it some justice.

I was sitting on the shoreline of the yarra river on the night of the firework show that is in the video. It was the culmination of our annual Moomba Festival. A wonderful night for the best city in the world.

Thank You.
