Po­lice re­minder about drink­ing on the street

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUNDUBBERA Po­lice Sergeant Daniel Clarke has re­minded res­i­dents not to drink on pub­lic streets.

“It’s an of­fence to con­sume liquor in a pub­lic place,” Sgt Clarke said.

“Of­fend­ers or peo­ple lo­cated con­sum­ing liquor in a pub­lic place face the pos­si­bil­ity of an on-the-spot fine.

“They also face the pos­si­bil­ity of a 10-day ban from all li­censed premises.”

Sgt Clarke said he was of­fer­ing the re­minder af­ter he heard about in­stances of peo­ple stand­ing on the foot­paths out the front of pubs drink­ing al­co­hol.

Peo­ple can only drink in pub­lic if the area is de­clared an of­fi­cial wet area.

Fines can be up to $121.
