So alcohol won't affect you? Then why do you bother drinking at all?
Today we publish a simple message from Moyagh Murdock, the chief executive of the Road Safety Authority.
In summary, she says: "Saving lives on our roads requires a zero-tolerance attitude to drink-driving."
Do we have that zero-tolerance attitude? No, we haven't, judging by comments from some people.
Moyagh uses statistics and research to show how lives have been saved after drink and drive penalties/deterrents were imposed.
There is a logic to it all. She shows how even small amounts of alcohol affect your judgment at the wheel.
How can we, as a nation and in conscience, allow anything except total sobriety at the wheel of a potential killing machine?
Yet some would have us believe small amounts of alcohol don't affect you.
If alcohol doesn't affect you, then why would you bother drinking in the first place?
Read Moyagh and ask yourself if you want any of your loved ones meeting someone who has a 'harmless' amount of drink taken.
