I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy the experience, not least because my weekday place of work is 4 hours drive from my weekend place of residence. I don't imagine even the mildest Magistrate sanctioning a curfew order that says that I need stay within 200 miles of my home between the hours of 7pm and 6am every day.
Maybe the next step is for a Magistrate to try an Unpaid Work Requirement, where they would have to spend a large amount of their spare time on tasks benefiting the community.
But we already do that - and we don't get those rather fetching luminous vests either.
In fact, what we do has many features that would seem to many like punishments.
- We spend our time locked in badly-maintained buildings.
- With lawyers.
- We can't wear comfortable clothing.
