Austria observes German ‚drink and ride‘ debate

Dienstag 23. November 2010 von htm

Public transport officials in Austria are looking across the border as Germany has become entangled in a heated debate over the possible introduction of a „drink and ride“ limit for passengers.
Criminologist Christian Pfeiffer told the Berliner Kurier newspaper today (Fri) the implementation of a legal limit for passengers may slash damage costs and the number of violent incidents.
Especially public transport operators in the country’s capital Berlin have registered a dramatic rise of costs caused by trams, buses and underground trains which are damaged and dirtied. Some officials linked the development to boozing passengers. They also appealed on politicians to step in over the soaring number of fights among drunken passengers.
