The lock out laws are working. Let’s keep our streets safe.
The facts speak for themselves. The lock out laws are working. Rates of violence on our streets and the carnage in our emergency departments have fallen.
Lives have been saved and hundreds more have been spared from debilitating injury.
But now, a small vocal minority and bar and night club owners with vested interests are calling for the lock outs to be lifted and for these life-saving alcohol laws to be scrapped.
This logic, is deeply flawed and would only lead to spike in alcohol related assaults and a return to the blood-soaked streets we’ve worked so hard to put behind us. It makes as much sense as increasing the blood alcohol limit for driving to 0.08 since road crashes have fallen.
