Firstly, sorry for the Google translation. It was the best I can do...
Basically, a Shell station employee had a customer who was so intoxicated that she saw fit to prevent the individual from continuing to drive off.
In response, the station manager fired her with immediate effect due to Shells own regulations that state that employees may not interfere in affairs that could be dangerous to themselves or others.
The public didn't take this lightly..... the station's Facebook page is being hammered by angry people who pretty much show their disagreement with Shells decision. A lot of people are now even cancelling their Shell cards out of anger.
Interestingly enough the local police have offered the former employee a reward of 100 dollars for doing her civil duty.
The organisation for Road Safety in Denmark has also stated that what she did was the right thing to do...
I'm just thinking..... where are we, if we can't make judgement call, and prevent a very serious accident from happening by simply withholding an individual until help arrives? How can a private company's own set of rules EVER trupmh the rules and laws of society.
Especially in Denmark where we have a ZERO tolerance for DUI.
Google translate of the affair.
