Default how stupid

the scottish government want to place signs in games to warn children of dangerous/drink driving. wtf. firstly i think kids would pay more attention to the game than a few signs, and its games like this that increase danger on the roads anyway, if they wanted to do anything then they should tone down the games (which is also a bad idea, if people want to be s**t heads on the road then its obvious they have a problem which is nothing to do with the games)

Kinda funny to me, but who knows. Maybe it will make a little bit of an impact, which could be enough to save a family.

Anything to stop people drinking and driving has to be a good thing.....I am all for a complete and utter ban on drinking and driving.....

There is absolutely no need to drink and drive if your going out for a couple of drinks then don't drive........

Totally agree with you mate. The more done to stop it the better. People who have lost family/friends due to drunk drivers will tell you nowhere near enough is being done.
