The Supreme Court said today that from April, there shall be no liquor shops on highway and the license of existing shops shall not be renewed.
This is the major step toward banning liquor where SC ordered that the liquor shops will be 500 metres away from city,state or highways.
People can link this decision to the destructive role that liquor plays for those who drink and drive. Not only does it cause distraction but also leads to major accidents. Hence this decision can be proven fruitful to minimise road accidents and public safety.
Various appeals for challenging the verdict are coming up where its being demanded that the liquor shops that shall be opened far from the highways or state should not be made visible or accessible to the commuters.
