“Don't do it”

published 19/07/2001

There are none

Please just read the op

Today at work has not been the most pleasant of ones, which is putting it mildly. Yesterday, there was a major road accident. I heard about it as I was leaving work. The managers at the hospital were asking us to be ready to take admissions from other wards so that they in turn would be able to...

HOW COULD THERE BE ANY?

FAR TOO MANY TO MENTION

MY EXPERIENCE. NOW LET THIS BE A LESSON TO PEOPLE OUT THERE, LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE...... My story begins on 4th October 2001, (setting the scene) it was a quite cold rainy wintery evening, i got home as usual at around 4:30pm and proceeded to do the usual things (Mr routine) such as relax and eat...

save lives

none

Having read a few of the opinions about drink driving, ithought i would write one about my own experience. I had never driven a vehicle whilst under the influence of alcohol in my life until one very stupid and dreadful night that will live with me for the rest of my life. It was a friday night...

Kills, you and others

“Have a drink, go on, just the one.” “I shouldn’t really I am driving” “Oh go on, one will not hurt” “Oh, ok then, mines a whisky” Could they be the fatal conversational words that see you, your friend or an innocent kid dead? That is the...

“A question of judgement”

published 07/06/2001

drinking is a great way to relax with friends

can be lethal if mixed with driving

Don’t you find there are enough bad drivers out there who aren’t under the influence of alcohol (or other drugs)? You can avoid accidents with these people by anticipation but this relies on your time to respond to what you see is happening around you. And why do people drink? To...

Kills.

How often have you heard some moron say that drinking does not affect their driving. Let us look at the general pattern when somebody is drinking: After one pint they probably could still drive. After two pints they probably will still drive, but spend more time looking out for police cars than...

Too many

Drink driving is a crime and offenders should be locked up and the key thrown away. If they are lucky, they will get caught and receive a ban, worst case scenario is they will seriously injure, maim or kill someone and still receive a ban. If that affects anyone reading this (and judging by the...

Too many victims are injured or even killed

Drink driving is a major problem all over the country and in other countries. There is no excuse for it but yet after all the campaigns to help the fight against drink driving it still goes on. Just the other morning I was out taking the children to school and had my two little ones in my tandem...

Injuring, killing or maiming innocent people.

The atmosphere is great, the company engaging and the drinks are flowing so quickly you've lost count. So what's the harm in having another swig or two before you hit the road? It's the middle of the night after all, and you're only going to be driving yourself home, so you're the only one being...

Innocents are usually the victims

How many people can truly say they have never driven when they have been drinking? Well I for one can. I abhor those who get behind the wheel of a car when they have consumed alcohol. It matters not to me whether they are over the limit or not, the fact that they have taken alcohol at all means...

“Go Ahead and Do It”

published 07/02/2001

none

the consequences

Sure, go ahead and drink a few, then go for a drive. No, really, go to the pub now (if it is open) or go downstairs and open a few cans/bottles, swig them down quick then find the car keys. Do this if you want to be a danger to yourself, other drivers and society in general. I know it was not...

“My story”

published 25/07/2001

why is this box here?

death and destruction

My gran was a wonderful lady and even at eighty two years old she was very independant and led a full and happy life. She had started to show signs of senile dementia but nothing advanced and she still lived by herself in her flat. Why am I telling you about her? Well five years ago she was...

Easy to get home

Will it be without killing yourself or someone els...

I was never really interested in passing my test and didn't even have any driving lesson's until I was 23. Thing is, I was to interested in going out and having fun, getting drunk, staggering home etc... I know one or two people (I am ashamed to say) who seem to think that they can set their own...

Peoples lives

One more for the road??? How many times has a friend asked you this? We all like a drink or two but what do you do if you are driving, you know the scene you pop to the pub in the car with a friend just for one drink, more friends appear, and you get another drink, then of course you feel like...

obviously none!

the loss of lives

It’s not Christmas, so you don’t see too many campaigns from the government tying to reduce the number drink-driver incidents! I still can’t work out why this is only an important issue at Christmas. Surely it’s worthy of year round campaigning? I have noticed some ciao...
