Governor Cuomo Announces Decrease in Alcohol-Related Traffic Fatalities on 30th Anniversary of the Raising of New York's Drinking Age | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

       Wow, time flies. Thirty years since the drinking age went up to 21 and people under 21 are drinking more and more. Listen to the stats.
       Sure, alcohol related MVAs are down, but that's due to fear of arrest and changing attitudes towards drinking and driving.
       The 21 year old drinking age is a denial of the realities of life.

What a scam, There is absolutely no correlation between the increased drinking age, and decreased driver fatalities, other than at the same time the drinkng age was increased there was also a crack down on DWI by the police. Especially considering that the vast majority of people between 18-21 years old in this country don't even drive because they live in metropolitan areas.

The only true statistic is that illegal drug use skyrocketed in our country beginning the day they raised the drinking age, right along side the scourge of binge drinking by young people. It's cheaper and easier in this country to buy heroin than it is to by a beer, and this moron politican is bragging about that.

It's no wonder our country is gong to complete shit.

It's crazy that the feds got away with forcing the states to raise their drinking age and lower the bac for "dwi" and lower their speed limit.

Does this sound familiar?

It is amazing that our state run media outlets such as Junk Newz, all print the same headlines and link to the story, for the purpose of promoting our dictator.
