Whats the law over there?? Here you have to be 18 to get into a bar, 21 to drink.
This is just stupid. Whats the point of going if you cant drink? It makes no sense to me at all.
You have to be 21 to get in all the bars that I go to.
If they lowered the drinking age to 18, then you would have to be 18.
I agree with you... When I go to a bar, I go to drink.
But the last thing that I want is a bunch of non-responsible 18 year olds drinking at a bar.
Why are you people labeling all 18-year-olds as immature? Seriously, you should be labeling yourselves as immature because it's your age group that causes drunk driving accidents. Have you ever seen an 18-year-old get involved in a drunk driving accident?
I don't think your comments were directed to me, but yes, I have seen horrible accidents involving underage drinkers. There have been people paralyzed and killed that I know because of drunk-driving accidents. Granted some of these were because the driver of their own car was drunk, but I can think of many other instances where it was just an innocent teenager driving home.
How do these accidents compare with the accidents caused by 21+ drunken drivers? They're almost so minute in comparison that they don't really factor.
There isn't any evidence to suggest that lowering the drinking age would increase drunken driving accidents.
