Campaign to eradicate under-age-drinking menace
With the increase in the number young lads taking up drinking as a new trend these days, a sudden jump in offences including rash driving and accidents are now a normal scene in Scotland. To keep a check to this growing menace and also to make sure these young children don’t get addicted to this liquor mania. Tayside police have stood up with a new plan to have a control on these growing cases.
In this drive, it was thought of implementing extra police patrols in area which are known to be vulnerable to these incidents. To make this campaign more strong and result oriented, few other agencies will also be involved in order to overcome this current issue. Talking regarding this issue, Chief Superintendent Colin McCashey, the divisional commander in Dundee said, if we look to the record of last month of 2007 we can find that hundreds of young children were caught either under the influence of alcohol or with the possession of alcohol.
In one of such recent road accident report, which we published in our blog regarding the death of Mr Newlove, 47 who lost his life when some youths under influence of liquor hit him with car while he was crossing the road. This was just one of such recent incidents, many other such accidents have been occurred which opens a debate for this change in trend among young children.
Now this issue has taken a big toll on the society both practically and physiologically demanding a need for a change in these types of growing habits in youths. Even its more over now the responsibility of parents to keep an eye on their wards and check what they are doing and do they possess some bad habits or company.
