    I don't think the legal age for purchasing alcohol has much to do with the drink driving rate at all. I've seen drink drivers from 14 up to 80-odd.

    New trading hours for pubs, clubs, restaurants and any other place that sells alcohol where you can eat. The hours are 5 to 11 pm.


    Please tell me what you think?? or am I going mad.

    I am glad that I dont have a licence.
    What about people who work the midnight shift?

    After work they shouldn't be able to enjoy an adult beverage in a legal setting?

    Not everyone works 9AM - 5PM and sleeps from 11PM - 6AM.

    I see nothing wrong with a beer during lunch. Of course I barely drink as it is and when I do, it is in a responsible manner.

    For the occasion I get plowed on Mad Dog 20/20, Steel Reserve 211 and Schiltz, it is in a situation where I know I won't be driving.

    "Please tell me what you think?? or am I going mad."

    I think that the government gets too involved in many areas of public life (or would like to).

    I think that common sense is not common.

    I don't think "your going mad", but I would be concerned if you were in a position to make and enforce laws that I would be subjected to.

    I think no one should drink and drive. I also think no one should drink and type.
    Any Post I make is my opinion only!
    I do not have the authority or the permission to post for my Sheriff's Office.

    I agree with you. Believe it or not but some years back gov made a law where kids can get their parent's to court and divorce them.

    Yeah, I agree something needs to be done. It's called being responsible and taking responsibility! One very important characteristic lacking in a lot of people. Just out of curiosity, why are you so concerned about the whole of the U.S. when you don't even live here?

    Steve, we have something called Roving Patrols for drunk drivers. I don't know that much about them though. Maybe some of the LEOs can tell you more. We also have specialized units which do nothing but look for drunk drivers. There are also DUI checkpoints, which often result in a lot of arrests, and which also get word out that the police are watching out for people driving under the influence.

    Maybe when you arrive here you and your wife will want to get involved with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). They're always looking for volunteers, and you'll have fun as well as helping to stop drunk driving.

    Here, this is slightly topical: http://www.killsometime.com/Video/video.asp?ID=453

    You know, there are some threads I look at and just go "Huh?" This is one of them.

    Here every police car is a r.b.t.u meaning Random Breath Testing Unit and they do have speciaized units to. Which is all very but I feel it come's back to the Gov who make dum law's so that the young people of today have it easy to things that only belong to adult's.
