Talking beer mug
At least, that's what the Minister of Environment of Northern Ireland, Arlene Foster, thinks. She, in all her wisdom, has proposed that Northern Ireland reduces the drinking limits for car drivers, to 0.5 g/liter, while for motorcycle riders, the alcohol limit will be reduced even further to 0.2 g/liter (the equivalent of half a beer)!!

According to the Minister, bikers are more vulnerable, and therefore she's planning to reduce their booze intake.

But wait a minute..... we all agree that bikers are more vulnerable, but all studies have shown, that the majority of accidents are CAUSED BY CARS!

Stupid woman.... you'll probably save a lot of biker lives if you swap your idea, reduce even more the car DUIDriving Under Influence. Drinking and driving. limits.

Yet again, we're discriminating motorcycles riders! The same law should apply to everyone, no exceptions towards bikers. This is not an argument that drinking & driving laws are bad, it's got nothing to do with it: it's about one law just for bikers, one law for everyone else!

Thankfully, the law hasn't been accepted yet, so let's hope the politicians in the UK wake up and smell the beer roses.
