                       PASSAGE COMPREHENSION

A pioneering scheme has been started recently in Southampton on England’s south coast to educate motorists who have been convicted of drunken driving.
     
     
       The penalty for drunken driving might be the loss of driving license and a heavy fine,but under the new scheme,convicted drivers do not pay the fine.instead they have to attend eight training sessions-one a week-organized by local authority probation service.Designed to demonstrate the damage alcohol can do,the scheme was devised by senior probation officer Jhon cook.He said about a quarter of the people who came to him had a drink problem,but had not realized how much they were drinking.one way of getting the message across was to make the drivers pour out their usual ration of alcohol- and them measure it.
          Almost everyone pours out not a single measure but a double at least – an example of how it is to have more than “just one drunk” and to encourage other people to do the same. The instructors on the course are giving clinically evidence of the effects of alcohol on the body and brain. The sober truth is that drunk badly affects driving skills, although the drinker might like to believe otherwise.
