    With all the death, destruction and mayhem directly caused by the extremely dangerous and highly addictive drug alcohol, it is about time to make it completely illegal, and should be on the class 1 of the drug schedule due to its high potential for abuse and no medical use.

    Or people should just not drive when they have had any substance which could impair. And their friends and acquaintances should be responsible.

    Why, why, WHY do so many people seem to think that the drink-driving laws only apply to other people and never to them? As far as I’m concerned, it’s very simple: if you’re going to drink, don’t drive; if you’re going to drive, don’t drink. It’s not exactly rocket science, is it?
