If the ships create higher rails then it will save the drunk people's lives.
It will also save the lives of people who get sea sick all of a sudden and want to go vomit on the ocean.
I once saw a lady say she was sea sick and asked someone where the restroom was..... I don't know if she got there on time. I notice that some decks don't even have public restrooms on some ships. A lot of the restrooms are hidden too.
How far do you want us to go to save drunken morons from themselves? Encase the entire ship in a wire cage??? Lets get real here. The railings are high enough. It is a matter of personal responsibility. (I can hear Oprah gasp !! )
