Just seen on the news that the proportion of ""young"" drink drivers is on the rise. The mother of two boys killed on the M6 by Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick (not sure if that's spelt right) has been on saying it's on the t.v. rise.
Wondered if people were surprised at this, as a young driver myself I have to say I am a bit. I don't know or know of anyone who drinks and drives in the under-25 group (I'm assuming that's what the report means by ""young"" drivers). I thought it would be more of an older generation thing, since it wasn't against the law when they learnt to drive. Similar to how some older people don't wear seatbelts, as it wasn't against the law then either.
Also the report just said all these young people were drink-driving and gave no insight into context. Whilst I'd be surprised a lot drink and drive in one sitting, maybe a lot of these stats have come from people driving the morning after.
Just wondered what everyone thinks about this, I'm actually quite surprised.
