Suicide is illegal. What's the reason for that?

Cannabis is illegal. What's the reasoning behind that?

It's illegal to buy alcohol under 18 but only illegal to drink alcohol under the age of 5. What's the reasoning behind that?

Snooks was saying that laws are there for a reason, NR is highlighting that this a flawed argument.

Nothing at all, but snookerballs seems to think that every law is in place for a reason........

Trying to commit suicide is perfectly legal, succesfully committing suicide is still illegal rofl

Makes sense to have suicide illegal then huh? Got a reason for this law yet? Rolling Eyes Tell me, how many people have been charged with breaking this law? Do they have a punishment for it? Bury the person on the grounds of the prison maybe?? Rolling Eyes

Surely, Snookerballs, you should have the answer for why drink driving is illegal. after all, you were the one who stated that we have laws for a reason. I think you've just been shown that that's not always the case Wink

Come on. Seriously? Have I not answered this question already? No, I don't for a second think that you should be able to operate a vehicle if you are not fit to do so, however, drink driving offenses are rarely ever that black & white.
If you walk out of a pub, clearly falling all over the place & not even in control of your bodily actions, take time to find your keys, get in the driver seat of the vehicle & start the engine with every intention of driving home & falling into bed, and you get pulled by the police, you start driving & get pulled by the police or something like that then I have no sympathy what so ever.
However, these things are rarely that simple. The most worrying thing is, the situation I've just given is the type of person who would've driven home & not got caught.

The above post from shingle are the ones who get the label.....

It's not black & white.

Good Post Shingle! It reminded me of a time when I was out drinking with some friends and had walked back one of their houses, we stopped at my car just round the corner to grab some belongings and a stash of alcohol. As I was locking the car a police car pulled up and asked what I was doing, I explained the situation but the officers were both convinced that my car had just passed them further down the road and therefore they decided that I had been driving and they breathalysed me. I failed the roadside test and had to go to the station to take the more detailed test. Luckily by this time I had sobered up sufficiently to have passed but I was still looking at a drink drive conviction without having committed any crime in the first place! Shocked

My point was that I wasn't driving snooks, I was rather pissed and quite how I passed the test I'll never know but I was not driving in that condition I was locking my car when the police stopped me but at no point had I attempted to start the engine. I know that technically I was in charge of a vehicle under the influence but at no point was I danger to anyone around me.

I've just read that only 13 percent of accidents on our roads are caused by drink drivers. I expected that figure to be higher scratch

This means that out of the 20,538 deaths on our roads last year only 2,670 of them were caused by drink drivers

There were 8,724 deaths caused by alcohol alone

Statistically it's safer to drink and drive rofl

I'm sure we all hope never to get that knock on the door, but accidents happen & people die so if I don't get a knock on the door one day maybe someone will be knocking on my behalf........

Actually, the average is about 1 unit per hour. After 12 hours that would be 12 units or 6 pints, dependant on build etc. It can be much faster......

A touching story, but I don't think anyone has sympathy for someone who goes out with the intention of drinking & driving..........
