BHOPAL: The liquor shop on National Highway-12 at 11-Meel has the notoriety of being one of the biggest cause of road accidents due to drunkard driving. Secondly, it is easily accessible for the students as most of the educational institutes are just a stone’s throw away. The area residents said the students of various colleges in the areas living in hostels and rented apartments regularly create nuisance and organising carousels in birthday bash. They easily fall victim because of drunk driving to fatal road accidents which occur on the road just the other day. The liquor outlet the locals said is on the city outskirts but it is closer to educational institutes so administration should be pay attention before allotting the place for opening of the liquor shop.
“The liquor shop has become big headache. College students ruin their studies just because they easily become addicted. They start consuming in birthday parties and then within couple of years, they become drunkard.”
“The liquor has mostly affected young generation particularly students. Outsiders are mostly affected as they live away from parents and they fall prey to bad habits of their friend circle.”
“11-Meel liquor shop’s location is such that it just close to educational institutes in the area so students have easy access and they misuse the freedom as they are away from parents.”
“Drunk driving is very dangerous so liquor shop should be shifted from 11-Meel Trisection to other location as it will reduce the road accidents.”
