This is a regular occurrence in the NT....some people don't care about the law. 0.0 or 0.05 wouldn't make a difference!
Come on... Nobody has said anything of the kind. Nobody has called anyone irresponsible or anything the like.
We are entitled to our opinion and so far we had discussed this like adults that disagree on a point.
Please stop telling others that the their opinion is less worthy and they need to stop.
Please be very mindful of the hurt and grief of those that have lost love ones to drink driving.
I think 0.00 is unrealistic. 0.01 and 0.02 can be registered when someone is unawares of injestion of alcohol. 0.05 is a good rule as it has a nice safety margin.
Ok. I mention social responsibility because in my understanding that's why laws are created and therefore would be a factor in this discussion, not to imply that it's some selfish act to have a drink.
We make decisions every day regarding personal preference and social responsibility. I don't recycle as much as I should. I buy products that contain palm oil if I really like them. I don't always buy Australian made. I have been and currently am a smoker. All of these decisions have an impact on society - our decisions don't exist in a vacuum.
Likewise, our personal experiences influence our values. Much like my mum who never touched a cigarette because she grew up in a household of adults who smoked. Or how I have a pathological fear of abandonment and it's not hard to work out why.
It's not hard to understand how people who have been affected by drink driving have the opinions they do. It doesn't make them wowsers. It makes them emotionally wounded by something that could have been avoided.
Personally I am a big fan of @Mod-Nomsie's solution.
