MADD: FAU Shuttle Encourages Drinking

MADD: FAU Shuttle Service Encourages Drinking - WPEC-TV CBS12 News :: News - Top Stories

Isn't the purpose of MADD to prevent people from getting behind the wheel drunk?

I know when I was at FAU I would have been all for this shuttle. It's funny when a group starts out-stepping their original purpose. FAU finds a way to help prevent drunk driving and MADD's response is well that encourages drinking, instead of commending FAU for their efforts in preventing students from getting behind the wheel drunk.

And since when is it the university job to check id's of everyone going to a bar. These are young adults who are making the decisions, and the job not to admit underage people to bars should be the people at the bar, not the university.

Asinine.

They haven't done this poor a job of reporting since the original Jesus Stomp article.

My concern is that, despite the poor journalism, by driving traffic to the site and complaing about it, does that encourage them to do more articles like this? Perhaps they think they must be onto something if there's pushback.

What's the end goal… does WPEC want FAU to cancel the shuttle? Why? Are they concerned that this shuttle will cause blackout drunk college students to be slumped over sidewalks in Boca? I mean come on.

Then FAU will get bad press about not controlling their students. This shuttle is a good thing because it makes sure students get to and from their destination safely.

We get thousands more to live ON CAMPUS, it is a GOOD THING to have transportation for them to the shopping and entertainment areas and NOT be driving all their cars, regardless of drinking IMHO!

VERY short sighted and irresponsible reporting, VERY!
