What do you lot make of the news that one in five young drivers between 17-18 admit to drink driving and one in fourteen admit to using drugs and driving ( Brake/Co-operative Insurance study )?
I know it's a study of a section of drivers ( 3118 ) and not represent all 17-18 y/o but still a worry none the less.
Do you / have you knowingly driven after drinking too much or taking drugs?
Do current advert/poster campaignes make tyou think twice? Shopuld there be more uses of images such as this below to show what happens ( Chris Lee who broke every bone in his head/neck after drinking and driving )?
I think a zero alcohol limit should be introduced and the punishment for drink driving extended to a lifetime ban and a 3 year stay in prison.
The obvious of more roadside breath tests would also deter it IMO. But for that more police would be needed so it does not affect other Policing.
Harder driving test? Mmmm, dont think it would have an effect on its own.
More unmarked police on the roads dedicated to tackling crazy driving would be a good option and maybe using current road cameras to catch people driving like nobs ( something speed cameras cant do )..
Anywayz, your thoughts..
