If you travel to Spain or Europe you will see that a bars and fuel stations go hand in hand. And yes i though it was crazy when i seen them.

Also motorway car parks allow you only 2hrs stay before you get a nice big clamp or fine. As the report says a disaster waiting to happen.

This is a possible example of what can happen at these motorway pubs
" Drunk mother jailed after driving wrong direction on motorway for 23 MILES " found on same page as above link I know I wouldn't like to meet a driver never mind a drunk driver coming towards me on any motorway

I think it is fairly obvious that they intend to be predominantly selling food and it will also be there to service the travel lodge but don't let that get in way of some good old fashioned moral outrage.

Comeon it's ridiculous having ale served at the side of a motorway.

Totally different to around town roads.

Wanna drink then you wont be on the M40. Police will be all over it. Dont see the problem. I have such sympathy for anyone who has suffered loss from drink drivers but its not the supplier its the drinker who drives.

Okay, whatever you think. We are all entitled to our opinions guys.

I know for a fact it WILL cause problems, there are a lot of irresponsible people out there.

Just because you guys wouldn't do it doesn't mean to say others wouldn't.

Well I suppose that a lot of people won't get done speeding home for a bevy when then can make a pit stop en-route. Hat, coat, door......

Realistically, hysteria apart, the net result of this will be zero. If you are dumb enough to drink and drive, there are already gazillions of places that you can drink and then hop right onto a Motorway. Maybe we should close all those, as someone already said? Or bring back Prohibition?
By definition, the incident Red referred to (person driving the wrong way on a Motorway) can't have been due to drinking at, then exiting, a Service Area the wrong way, can it? (which, by the way, is probably quite a bit harder to do / less likely to happen, at a Services than at a normal junction?)
