The Italian Almanac
It happens in Italy - December 5th
Italian police had a hard time trying to stop a drunk man who drove from Frosinone to Cassino on the wrong side of A1 (Highway #1, also known as the Sun Highway). To stop the driver it was necessary to close the highway and to block the lane with a sand filled truck.
After finally stopping the mad driver, the highway patrolmen discovered that the drunk runner was a 23yo fellow policeman, usually working in Florence.
