    drink drivers are scum

    I dont plan on drink driving. drinking yes but driving, no. unfortunately i can't speak for everyone.
    When you go out drinking you should never take the car, even if you plan on finding another way home after you have had a drink as the temptation of the car being there is too much for some people. I always get a lift/bus/train/taxi to and from wherever i am going if i know i will be drinking. It is a shame. There needs to be more night buses and trains etc that come often and stay running till late.

    Selfish people who give little regard to themselves or anyone else, Others also have to suffer with the consequences of their actions.

    What I don't understand is why you can drink and drive at all. Why don't they just make it that if you consume ANY alcohol then you can't drive, this would then avoid people who think they're under the limit when actually they're not. I don't drink at all, not because I'm a goody-two shoes, just because I don't like the taste and in the past it's just made me really sick, so I don't understand anyone that has a drink and then drives, even if they are still under the limit. As someone said above, if you're going out you should make the choice whether to drink and taxi, or not drink and drive, before you go.

    drink drivers should lose their license end of, they are not responsible enough to have a licence with such disregaurd for others

    How would that stop it ? Banning something doesn't make it go away.

    Where would they get it from? They couldn't just drive to Tesco, get tanked up then drive off and kill somebody. No solution will ever be 100% but it's a big leap from the current situation.

    It would just drive it underground like drugs. Alot of them are banned, but pretty freely available to get hold of if you want them.
    And how many people go to Tesco and then drink the alcohol in the car park !

    They did it in America in the 20's I think it was (think it was called prohibition), it basically resulted in alcohol being smuggled in, increasing organised crime etc. Think Al Capone was one of the more famous people involved in it.

    Anyway, the moral of the story is that if you ban it, people will still find a way to get their hands on it. And it won't necessarily be the quality that we have now, look at the stories you get of cheap vodka being illegaly distributed, and it's basically paint thinner or something.

    As for drink driving, got to say that article was probably one of the best things I've read on why not to do it.
