Elvis Russian Imperial Stout

Before ordering a pint or two of Elvis Russian Imperial Stout (the fifth-best beer in Moldova, according to one website), drivers might want to check what a drink-drive conviction might mean.

Motorists in the east European country who drink too much and are convicted have their licenses confiscated. They can get them back however if they pay the equivalent of around £170 (average monthly salary there is about £260) and agree to enter a 12 session “re-education programme”.

This programme sees drunk drivers help out with treatment of road accident patients at hospitals, or give coroners help with autopsies. Duties can include washing the corpses before their autopsies, or cleaning the bodies of blood, shit and piss.
