Australian nightclub limitations are about to get a lot worse
Australia’s notoriously strict nightclub limitations are about to get even worse with a new breathalyzer law. Police in Queensland will soon be able to enter nightclubs and breathalyze patrons inside who they believe are highly intoxicated. BAC levels at or above .15 are considered “highly intoxicated”. After recent reports of alcohol-fueled club violence in the area, Queensland attorney general Yvette D’Ath says, “Allowing police to breathalyze drunken patrons will help them to build cases for prosecution for court.” Nightclubs who refuse to allow police to act out this new law in their clubs will face a hefty $56,000 fine.
Queensland officials are also trying to make clubs close by 3am with a 1am lockout rule, as well as no shots or strong drinks served after midnight.
