    Shortly after dawn, I spotted this one opposite Super Li as I was walking home, after another gruelling (part train, part walk, part hitch-hike) three-hour overnight journey from Maribor to Ptuj (22km).

    Congratulations for not drunk driving, mate, although I cant believe there isnt a tax on this in Slovenia. Strictly speaking he has built a hotel.

    Now the local economic strategy is based on creating as many alcoholics with lung cancer as we can. 286 years after smoking was banned in Berlin, 69 years after Roffo showed a heavy smoker could inhale four kilograms of tar in 10 years, and 56 years on from Sir Richard Dolls epidemiological nailing of the tobacco coffin, what is the situation in Ptuj?

    The situation is that drinkers, among them medical workers, economists, sporty types and teachers, bitter at the EUs indoor ban, cant wait for the pubs lock-in to begin so they can light up their torches of freedom* and show their powerful addiction to individualism.

    — + + + —

    Meanwhile, Years Per Life Lost (YPLL) per death resulting from the acute effects of alcohol accounted for relatively more mortality in younger persons, an average of 30 years of life lost for each death associated with excessive blood alcohol levels, in contrast with a YPLL of merely 12 for each death from alcoholic cirrhosis.

    We hope this trend in favour of the sudden-splat type of death continues. A police car, ambulance and breakdown truck is much healthier for the economy than years of underperformance and months of long, slow, lingering expiry in hospital.

    Statistically, you can see that alcohol is, in this way, helping to reduce the smoking deaths which take decades.

    And deaths from house fires caused by unconscious, smoking drunks mean that smoking is cutting the alcoholism statistic.

    So its a win win. All we need now is something to cut the number of statisticians.

    — + + + —

    With an average 72.6 road traffic accidents per 100,000 inhabitants from 1994 to 2001, Slovenia was among the countries with the highest in the WHO European Region. In 2000 Slovenia ranked second only to Greece (216.1 per 100,000) with 77.4 traffic accidents per 100,000, narrowly beating Croatia (75.7). You beat Croatia! Yay!

    RTA deaths appear to have peaked in 2007 with a 27% drop in 2008. The number will probably now rise again unless better ways of counting can be found.

    Otherwise those 2008 victims who are currently 27% less dead will experience increasingly less afterlife than under previous, more religious, governments.

    With young people you can always rely on unquestioning herd behaviour – actually all people. Luckily any party poopers and physical wrecks over 25 who might spoil the fun are at home, in eerily quiet villages, in bed with the lights out by 9 oclock.

    So were all going to die. And waste everybodys money doing it. Hurry up then, so we foreign devils can buy some more of your nice cheap houses!

    — + + + —

    But while youre encouraging one another to stay out all night in pursuit of this premature/cancelled ageing (and there are other things to do) how about some fucking public transport when weve had enough of it?

    Probably then wed get a drunk bus driver. Or maybe anyone old enough and sober enough to drive weekend nights – when everyone needs it the most – just loves their family too much.

    But typically creative, Slovenes have already hit on a solution to this dilemma.

    The only time I accidentally entered the drivers compartment of a Slovenian train, I was surprised to find an entire family crammed into the tiny space.

    Next to the wife and younger son was a boy about 7, sat on daddys knee, helping him to drive the train, his hand on the dead mans handle as we sped through the tar-black night.

  2. Deadly Days of Summer for Teen Drivers

    100 DEADLY DAYS OF SUMMER FOR TEEN DRIVERS:
    TIPS & BEST PRACTICES ON TEEN DRIVER SAFETY

    Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy Offers Tips for Parents & Teen Drivers;
    Hosts Free Parent Teen Driving Workshops in Orange County

    LOS ANGELES – Memorial Day through Labor Day are now often referred to as the 100 Deadly Days of Summer because it is the time period when there are a higher number of driver and passenger fatalities among 15-20 year olds, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). To help offer strategies for safe driving, Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy, the CA-state DMV-certified teen driving school, announced it will begin offering classes in Orange County.

    Teens driving in the summer are a lot riskier than most parents realize. In the summer, teens drive more without parental supervision, at night when there are more road risks and where driving with teen friends can offer additional distractions while they are behind-the-wheel, said Marc Hemsworth, senior driving coach at Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy and former Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief Driving Instructor. Safe driving is an acquired skill and parents can play a critical role in ensuring their teen has the tools to avoid accidents.

    Mercedes-Benz Driving Academys Marc Hemsworth is a 30-year veteran of LAPD, of which he spent twenty-five years as a driving instructor at the Los Angeles Police Academy. He offers these tips and best practices:

    California Graduated Driver Licensing laws require 50 hours of supervised driving during the six months before teens receive a drivers license, but research shows that after 120 hours of practice, a teens crash risk goes down by 40%. Take advantage of the long days of summer to rack up these crucial supervised practice hours!

    Before handing over the keys, parents should have a discussion to reinforce route pre-planning, road rules and expectations.

    Establish a parent-teen driving agreement. Many parents and teens find that creating a written agreement with specific guidelines helps to set clear expectations, such as a passenger limit, which limits the number of people allowed in the vehicle, or no passengers at all if driving with a provisional license.

    Reiterate the full range of distractions that a teen may encounter from the more obvious talking on the phone and texting to loud music, friends talking, channel surfing, direction anxiety and even handling of food or drinks.

    Most importantly, set the best example for teens with your own driving. Demonstrate respect for road rules, eliminate distractions and exercise proper decision-making at all times.

    On May 22 and June 5, Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy will host free Parent Teen Workshops at Mercedes-Benz Classic Center at 9 Whatney, Irvine, CA. During the workshops, certified Driving Coaches provide valuable information on Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws, teen driving statistics, and strategies for safe driving. Attendees at the workshops will also receive off of a full driver training program purchase and other incentives.

    Plus, the Academy is offering additional distracted driving workshops and activities in the Los Angeles area.

    For details on additional Parent Teen Workshops in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, interested teens and parents should contact the Academy directly at 855-MBDA-USA or 855-623-2872.

    Bonnye Spray lost her 17-year-old daughter in a distracted driving car crash. Her daughter was driving and texting and took one corner too fast.

    Six years ago to this date, I said goodbye to my best friend, Spray said during the press conference in April to raise awareness for National Distracting Driving Awareness Month.

    I was guilty, I was texting her too. Spray said. And I have to live with the guilt of knowing I probably contributed to it It was such a preventable accident.
