“Yes, I mean the more boozed you get, and the more opportunity you’ve got to get boozed, the more opportunity you’ve got to make bad decisions really, at the end of the day. Going out at night and getting wasted is kind of attractive to a good chunk of our youth population. Once they’re in town and it might be that if bars closed at 3, for example, they’d go home. But suddenly they’re in town until 7 or 8 in the morning and who knows what’s going to happen in that window. Who knows what is going to happen when they’re so trashed that they can’t remember what sort of other stuff that they’ll start to think is a good idea after all, with their beer goggles on, so to speak.” – From a concerned Aucklander
