Australian Police Limit Racing Fans to a Scant 24 Cans of Beer per Day
Seeking to promote responsible drinking at Australia’s ‘Great Race’ the Bathurst 1000, a 3 day race in New South Wales, police have limited the quantity of alcohol any spectator may bring onto the grounds per day.
No one may bring in more than 24 beers per day, unless those beers are light beers, in which case 36 cans are allotted. Wine drinkers must subsist on a meager 4 liters per day, per person (roughly 5 and a half bottles).
Although some fans question the ‘strict” consumption limits, police say that the measures are necessary to protect race fans from those few hooligans that endanger public safety.
