Love the embarrassment factor of naming & shaming once convicted- this should happen more - for all crimes!

Dricing is an activity in which competitors try to manoeuvre a car around an obstacle course. They roll dice along the dashboard, and they dictate whether to go left or right and so on. It's even more fun if you do it p!ssed. You should give it a go sometime - it's a scream.
