I found this article to be very interesting. There are over 87,000 pub fights are year in England, which cost the National Health Service over $4 Billion a year. Basically the British government is saying, "Well Liam and Caleb are going to take the Manchester United's loss's a little too hard. They are going to get rowdy and belligerent, but lets keep the shards of glass from harming Cameron while he enjoys his fish and chips." I support this idea, I like the idea of people being able to drink out of glassware while cutting back on injuries in pubs. The shatterproof glasses borrow engineering principles derived from car windshields, which are also designed to keep people safer. The cost of not having to replace glassware so frequently will help more pubs save money as well.
