From the BBC News website:

Alcohol should be served far more often in plastic glasses and bottles to reduce the injury toll from violent attacks, says Dr Alasdair Forsyth, a researcher from the Glasgow Centre for the Study of Violence.

A fellow expert said targeting city centres and late-night clubs and pubs should be the priority. Check out the rest of the story here.

It’s a shame there are people out there who get quite violent after drinking lots of alcohol. These researchers are suggesting that we start using plastic cups in areas where the most fights occur, and I agree with them. Violent drunks will probably look for other means to injure their victims, but limiting their options makes a lot of sense to me.
