My eyes caught sight of the sentence below 'Champion hawkers riding high' which reads
'Customers are making a beeline to the stalls of the newly crowned 'kings'.
The above captions appeared in a local newspaper which I read this morning.
In the second sentence, 'making a beeline to' is wrong usage. It should be 'making a beeline for'.
Let me construct a sentence to illustrate the correct usage:
As soon the bell for recess was rung, the pupils made a beeline for the canteen.
It means they headed straight to the canteen to satisfy their hunger.
I hope the newspaper will be more careful so as to avoid grammatical errors such as the one mentioned in this post.
