Drink Driving

Right this is more of a poll TBH, i've found that a fair few people i know that drive actually drink drive without batting an eyelid! and i mean actually drunk, coming to pick people up from night clubs after they've had a heavy nights drinkin themselves.

i've always seen on the news if a drink driving stupid bstard is driving, hits someone, it's always the innocent party that gets hurt more/killed

i really want to know if it's just the nob ends round here or if it's everywhere.

please note though: these are just people i know of though, not my mates, only 1 of my mates i know of drink driving got what he deserved.

reckon i should report them if i see them?

Re: Drink Driving

if i'm honest, my main concern of drink driving is getting caught, not other road users, drink makes you confident though

Re: Drink Driving

almost everyone i knew was driving on drink and drugs when we were young and dumb. i bet things havent changed and the kids are still doing it. driving home from a club 200miles away after taking half a dozen pills and a gram of ket seemed like a perfectly normal thing to do in 2002. no one i know of ever got hurt or in trouble with the law through doing it, which is incredible in hindsight.

Re: Drink Driving

I dont drink much at all so when i know im going out i dont drink anything.

Its the way to go to be safe.

I have been out with people who seem to think they can have a glass of wine or 3 and still drive fine

Re: Drink Driving

Yes... report them everytime! How would you feel if you knew they were drink driving, did nothing and then they mowed down and killed a child. Only takes a phone call....
