A Facebook fan page called, ‘if u drink n drive ur a bloody idiot, if u make it home ur a f*ckin legend’ has upset police authorities after 19,228 users have said they ‘liked’ the page.
The page also includes various comments of… drink driving advocates who express instances where they have got away with drink driving. Police authorities in Geelong, Victoria, an area with one of the highest recorded accounts of drink driving offenders, has expressed their concerns towards these attitudes.
A recent report by news.com.au spoke with Geelong Traffic Management, Senior Sergeant Shane Coles, who warned fans of the page that police could target those users in the future. He said,
“They’re playing with fire and they need to realise that police don’t live in a cave, we do use these sites. Users on pages like YouTube and Facebook we can follow up on and we can target in the future.”
Some of the comments on the page include, ‘I MADE IT HOME, AND TOO MCDONALDS. TWICE!!’ and ‘I drink and drive every weekend, whatcha gonna do about it’.
The total fans is a lot for a Facebook fan page, for comparison, a Subaru Facebook ‘Interest’ page currently has 20,132 fans, just 904 more than this site.
