SharonA BS: proposed alteration to drink driving level (137* d) RE: BS: proposed alteration to drink driving level 02 Nov 09


Soldier Schweik: I did not "invent" your words. I quote from your post of 27 Oct 09 - 02:07 PM:

"...it would be a bad law, because it will lead to further rural isolation,possibly more rural suicides in isolated communities,where getting out to the pub once a week and socialising,and having two pints just about makes life worth living."

I'm not "telling" you what to do; just giving my advice and my opinion. Take it or leave it.

All this talk by you and others about all the other factors that lead to dangerous driving is beside the point. The point, I thought, was the "proposed reduction of the drink drive blood alcohol limit from 80 mg to 50 mg per 100ml", to quote you again. To me, the look-at-what-all-the-other-drivers-are-doing-wrong talk is just so much childish whining. Wahh, wahhh, wahhhhh. Sheesh -- man up, already, and put the pacifier away!

It's true that being stone-cold sober is no guarantee of being safe from those other drivers, but it will increase your chances of not killing someone else! Likewise, the logic of the lawmakers seems to be that lowering the blood-alcohol limit may increase every drinker's chances of not killing him/herself and/or someone else.
