The Independent Online
YOUR Opinions column ('Would you favour a total ban on drinking and driving?', 12 December) followed reports of a survey that drivers aged 18 to 30 were unlikely to drink and drive on principle. But a few months ago it was proposed that because of their appalling accident rate the under-25s should have limits placed on their speed and the size of their engines.

So these drivers, who are least capable of driving without colliding with people and things, consider themselves qualified to judge the safe driving ability of others simply because they do not drink and drive? How absurd]
