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.
Drinking driving is a new addition to the multi-cultural facet of Britain. These days this has more over taken a massive shape with many tragedies occurring daily, claiming lives of many innocent people. If we look at the records we can find several cases of drinking driving accidents are being reported in which many people even lost their lives without any reason.
In one of the recent such case of drinking driving Mr Newlove, 47 was hit by a speeding car in which he perished. Another reason which has been one of the causes of such untoward incidents is the availability of cheap alcohol in the market. Police is trying out every single measure to eradicate this malpractice which is proving fatal for many.
There is a need for a strong concern for this sought of situations or such incidents would become a normal scene in the society. Ian Rushton, the Crown Prosecution Service’s chief prosecutor in Cheshire expressed, about the murder of Mr Newlove by three teenage drivers as, “This case is a strong warning for those young people who think they can get away with harassing, punching and intimidating residents, never caring about the consequences of their acts.”
Drinking driving has now became a big curse for Britain and it needs some strong action, so that it gets under control and not goes on taking its toll on many such innocent people like Mr Newlove who was kicked like a football by a bunch of erring teenage drivers.
