Drinking age - November 12th, 2010

Is it just a misconception, or is it true that the drinking age of 21 actually came about because the number of DUIs? In any case, if that is true, wouldn't a more sensible thing be to raise the driving age instead of the drinking age? The U.S. seems to be one of the very few countries having problems with this issue.

Re: Drinking age - November 12th, 2010

Some states are attempting to raise the legal driving age to 17 (some states are pressing for 18) since a disproportionate number of accidents occurs before age 18. The number of accidents drops significantly after age 21. This would indicate, logically, that the additional driving experience has paid off.

I completely agree with the fact that the drinking age should be increased from 18 years to 21 years

Re: Drinking age - March 11th, 2011

There is already a law "No Drink & Drive" which has been implemented in almost all the countries in the world.Some countries implemented in true spirits while in some countries,it not implemented.So,until ppl realise and turn out themselves things cannot be stopped.

Re: Drinking age - March 18th, 2011

But this law is repeatedly violated by today's generation.
A young man was charged with DUI-drugs after he fell asleep and lost control of his pickup at about 7:00 A.M. on I-85 in Coweta County south of Newnan. The trooper originally charged him with driving under the influence of alcohol, but the charge was changed to driving under the influence of drugs after the state crime lab blood test (allegedly) revealed the presence of cocaine and an inactive metabolite of cocaine.
