I had to rub my eyes to make sure I was reading a letter to the Spectator editor correctly today. The author suggests that because a new stadium would probably include much more parking, this would suggest that Bob Young and the Tiger-Cats are encouraging and/or condoning impaired driving…huh? :roll:
May I remind those, who might think this, that impaired driving is criminal behavour and is excercised by CRIMINALS.
This has nothing to do with the amount of parking spots available at a stadium for cripes sakes. People have choices to make and the Tiger-Cats can’t follow 30,000 patrons out the gates to see who climbs behind the wheel of a car and how many drinlks they have had. All they can do is refuse people who are clearly intoxicated at the point of sale.
As a public service they can also remind people over the PA system to not drink and drive…WHICH THEY DO ALREADY.
Here’s an excerpt from the letter to the editor (and the link):
“And why the need for all the parking spaces when so many attendees drink alcoholic beverages during the game? We are always hearing, “Don’t drink and drive.” Does Young intend to stop the sale of alcoholic beverages at the games? I hardly think so.”
