    Default Big Brother or Sensible Message...

    Near where i live in Ripley Derby's,the safety parnership have come up with a scheme whereby reverlers in the town over the Christmas period will be sent text and picture messages via two Bluetooth senders situated in licenced premises,so any one nearby(within 500 yds of senders) will potencially pick the messages up.

    Now these messages will apparantly contain pictures of people involved in RTAs showing injuries and the like,and also worded content ,warning them that drinking to much can end up with them being injured or worse.

    They say the content will be aimed at 18 to 24 yo,but how they actualy pin point this group i don't know.

    Anyway good idea or bad idea??What do you all think to it.

    eee....the demon drink? don't want to go near that stuff. they've beaten fags, now it's drink, tomorrow it will be being fat, then laughing/enjoying yourself.
    sounds like more brainwashing tactics by the ministry of no fun to me.

    Sounds flawed - it'll message anyone who has their phone set to discover, though may ask for permission if other security is set. Most of the kids younger than 18 have their handsets configured that way, so there's a real chance that a 10 year old could get them.

    Bluetooth broadcasting is not a precise thing - what are they going to ask? "XYZ is trying to send you a picture. You must be over 18 to view it. Are you over 18?" - every 14-yr old on the block will click 'Y'...
