Speech does not go about an absolute prohibition on alcohol. She means that in some situations it is necessary to refrain from alcohol intake. “ for example, on road or during pregnancy “.
the Trade union of German policemen (GdP) also has condemned the statement of Bekshtajna, having told that it “ it is impossible “. The chairman of Bavarian branch GdP Garald Schneider in horror: “ I ask a question that on it have found. Probably, he before the performance has drunk two litres of beer “.

“ Clumsy assistance before elections in landtag “
On Schneider`s belief, the statement made for two weeks to elections in landtag, Bekshtajn “ to itself has rendered clumsy assistance “. Bavarians “ the big nondrinkers, than our prime minister - the minister “. Schneider asserts that 99 % of participants of Oktoberfesta come for a holiday public transport. Despite it, the police strenuously supervises movement on roads.
the Vsegermansky automobile club (ADAC) considers opinion of Bekshtajna “ nonsense “. “ In no event it is impossible to exceed admissible norm of blood alcohol content “ - the representative of club considers. All people on - to a miscellaneous react to alcohol, she speaks. The greatest that the person presumes to itself to be “ suitable to driving “ - a small portion of beer or a wine glass at supper, but in any way two litres. Bekshtajnu does not follow “ to encourage people more to drink and then to get into the car “. “ From - for alcohol there can be too many accidents “ - she adds.

But in this case the car “ it is necessary to leave houses “. “ the Former Minister for Foreign Affairs could know it “. Maget “ persistently recommends “ Bekshtajnu “ not to do more than similar statements “. Maget considers that it is impossible to underestimate dangers of drunk driving.
the Leader of the party green in Bavaria Tereza the Shopper speaks: “ Certainly, while at such people as Gjunter Bekshtajn, is the personal driver, even after two litres of beer it will be possible to get into the car “. Certainly, pleasure by beer is one of the Bavarian traditions, she speaks, “ but driving in a state of intoxication - is not present “.
the Vice-president of fraction of Free democratic party accuses Bekshtajna of Bundestag Rajner Brjuderle that it offends “ good beer of Oktoberfesta “ equating it to “ to the diluted swill “. “ It for certain will not be pleasant to those who has a holiday “ - he speaks.
however owners of a holiday agree with Bekshtajnom. One of those who is engaged in carrying out of Oktoberfesta, considers: if “ the adult man in weight under hundred kg for all the day will drink only two litres and thus something eats, he can easy drive the car. We too want to enjoy life “.
