I do think that this is a good idea – yes, there may be some safe drivers around, but fact of the matter is that many youngsters think you can get away with a pint or two and get behind the wheel.
I refused any alcohol (zero tolerance) when I first passed my test and still upload this today (I don’t even have alcohol free beer) if I am driving.
The best example I can give on drink drive and how your reactions are impaired was when I was at Uni at the Chrimbo Ball (Well, TVU tried their best….) I had far too much to drink and but thought I could handle a dodgem car like Aryton Senna. Barely managed to drive in a straight line.
It is dangerous full stop – the sooner young people learn the better.
