I have my heart in my mouth every time I see people staggering up Dodworth Road, which happens a lot.

I have seen countless people walk straight into the road, narrowly missing injury, and I have also seen the aftermath of people who weren't so lucky. :-(

do you not think its time for barnsley to change its drinking culture. Maybe more people should be run down so that people wake up. Everybody likes a drink bu, liver damage .its in places like Barnsley across england that it is acceptable to be sat in a pub from morning till late afternoon on a weekday getting bladdered, causing police, ambulance service stress, causing god knows how much vandalism, social damage, fighting liver damage etc and yet alcohol is the number one most lethal drug available by the government today. It is now the year two thousand and twelve and we still have an idiotic culture of getting pissed. To be honest let them keep drinking, hopefully over time that gene pool will die out (very unlikely when 9 year olds are having kids). Drink be merry, but drink to enjoy not drink to not remember. idiots!

i understand hes/shes had a few too many but correct me if i'm wrong but it seems to me they ment to to walk out in the road, they looked left then walked fast into the on coming van, notice how theres cars parked at side of road as well, just seems to me as if it was planned, lucky the van driver was paying attenion.
