    Whats the correct behaviour

    What should a person do if they see under age youths drinking and driving. My wife say's let them be, they are only out having abit of fun. I say call the police. before anyone gets hurt, or should a person approach them and falsely tell them that the police have been told about them, and are out lookin for them, and that they should park the vehicle, and take a cab home.
    So what is the correct thing to do. ????

    tell your wife it's only fun till someone hurts an eye...or dies. i can't totally condemn drinking and driving cuz i've done it myself (1-2 beers) but my guess is that a group of under-age youths are having slightly more than 1-2 beers. i would have reported their license plate, as approaching them with not-so-good news might not be the best thing to do.

    Dont get involved directly, teens are unpredictable and could turn on you for even telling them that they have been reported.

    Phone 911 if you see them driving or the citizens crime watch if you dont.

    I have a big problem when people confuse drinking and driving vs drunk driving. Driving drunk is just plain stupid (Throw em in jail!), however having a beer and driving home is perfectly legal and for many people perfectly safe. I, for example, weigh 230 lbs and can drink a beer with dinnner and get in my car and drive home with a clear consciense. I don't feel this is stupid. I'm not putting anyone at risk.

    That little bit of fun could cost those youngsters their lives or more importantly some other innocent person's life. KO7 and I actually got a pretty first hand look at what drinking and driving does yesterday... combined with some street racing. Posted this on RevScene...

    Was coming home from Richmond after some all you can eat at Aji Taro around 12:45am last night on Alderbridge and I see a souped up dark green Corrado in front of me in the right lane. A black STi comes up on the left lane and changes into the right lane in front of the Corrado and starts speeding up. The Corrado didn't like being passed or something, so he decides to lean on the gas, and speeds up to pass the STi back. They were just approaching where it becomes the highway, so they were plain booking it. By the time I reached the crest of that little hill, they were far enough away I didn't even know which pair of tail lights belonged to who. But the STi didn't get very far. I don't know if the Corrado continued straight along highway 91 or whether he went to the 91-Knight connector, but the STi went to the 91-Knight connector... and crashed, hard. I got to the scene probably about 10 seconds after he lost it, and his car was about 15-20 meters away from the little tunnel part. Front end was completely smashed in - I'm guessing his rear end swung out, and then he over-corrected the other way and went pretty much perpendicular into the concrete barriers. Can't imagine any other way his front end would have been crunched in like that. STi ended up facing the other direction, and smoke was coming up from the hood and it was leaking fluid all over the place. Think they had a full car load of people too... but they all go out and started walking around in the middle grassy area. My friend and I called an ambulance for them just in case, but while we were talking to the ambulance, it became apparent that those guys did NOT want any emergency personnel at the scene. It became clear why after one of the guys came over to us and asked if we called 911. First of all, he asks us "Are you guys okay? Are you guys okay?" Um... yeah, I think it was you guys that got in the accident, not us. Then he kept asking us "Did you call 911? Did you call 911?" and seemed to be getting increasingly agitated. As you can probably guess... the guy was hammered. I could smell alcohol on his breath from 3 feet away. I don't know if he was the driver or not, but I'm guessing everyone in the car had been drinking. That, coupled with the fact that they were street racing, didn't result in a very favourable set of circumstances for them.

    We didn't stick around after that and left the scene. Don't know what became of those guys.

    Phone the Cops and let them deal with it. People have to take responsibility for their actions. How would any of you feel if someones died. It could have been stopped but nothing was done. Why would you even have to think about this.

    Maybe it a hard veiw but then again life is hard. Welcome to the real world!

    yeah i would not go up to them, from past experiences and stories I think the best bet is to call the cops if your serious, if there driving around and the driver is holding a 2six then there is going to be problems, anyways i would just let it go but im only 21 and most ppl i know will have a beer in the car when once and a while
    BUT NOT THE DRIVER,

    I have to agree on that point that drinking a beer with dinner over the course of an hour is not going to cause drunk driving. However, why not just have the beer at home or drink non-alcolohic beverages?

    Because I enjoy having a beer with dinner. And since I'm not impaired after having a beer with dinner, I don't see a reason not to.

    also kids will be kids and its not just kids its young adults as you call us (19-25) anyways I think that the whole drinking driving scene is fround apon and only idiots do it, but on the other hand it is not looked down on to drink in your friends car if he is sober and the one driving.

    Not all kids weighs 230 lbs. and can handle the liquor like adults.

    They are young and irresponsible when it comes to drinking and driving.

    Kids+Alcohol+Driving= fatal injuries.

    Smoking weed and piloting a motorcycle is a touch different than drinking and pioting a 4000 lb vehicle.....
