i never drink and drive , fortunately the bus services round here (liverpool) (london have them too dunno about everywhere else) is very good , on friday and saturdays the nite buses runs til 5 in the morning, thus removig any temptation for anybody think of saving on taxi money by driving home on a nite out the bus fare is only £2.50p,
i think as a matter of public safety nite buses should be encouraged all over the UK also pub hours should be deregulated so that there is no binge drinking and fewer people on the street at any one time ,making it easier to get taxis,buses and more relaxed atmosphere.
instead of everybody on the streets at 2am in the morning and fighting over taxis, police, driving home to avoid taxi queue, busyt coppers chasing drink driver , street fights at the mad hour of 2am .
I can't say that I have D&D'd but in my late teens and early twenties I certainly got into a car with someone over the limit. The journey home was only a mile or so, but it was through narrow streets with parked cars and others going home. It gives a chill down my spine to think how nearly it could have ended in grief.
Wonders who I can contact to ask permission to use it as a D and D lecture in the run up to the xmas period. Very powerful and would be a good aide to point out the dangers and how stupid drinking and driving is.
There is a open letter written by a Doctor from Ipswich General Hospital discribing what happens on arriving at a crash site. I would have posted it here but some thieving gypsy borrowed it permanantly. When I manage to get another copy will post it here for anyone to use.
