WARSAW (Reuters) – Prosecutors in overwhelmingly Catholic Poland have asked priests to read out the names of drink-drivers from the pulpit as part of efforts to reduce the country’s high road death rate.
Church leaders have not said yet whether they will support the scheme, aimed to shame drivers into sobriety.
"We post the names of convicted drunk drivers at town halls," said Rafal Grabia, a prosecutor in the mountain town of Zywiec in southern Poland. "But who reads that? The information is not reaching family, friends and neighbors."
So will the Drunkology come after the Martyrology?
