Please keep serious.

One thing we don’t hear much about in the forum is alcohol problems. Is alcohol abuse an issue in Poland like the USA? We have a high rate of youth drinking here in the USA and motor vehicle accidents due to drinking and driving. Are the numbers in Poland high also?

Alot of our children were dying in M/V accidents. We changed the law where I live and now when they first get their lic. they cannot have others in the car for 6 months.

America does NOT have alcohol problems, come to Britain and you will learn how to abuse alcohol.
