Sure we all gripe about excessive laws controlling alcohol use form time to time but this one from Australia seems a bit weird because the restriction is, ummm, not very restrictive:
For the second year running, NSW Police and V8 Supercars have agreed to limit the amount of beer, wine and spirits taken into the racing precinct. Adults can take one case (24 cans) of full-strength beer or one block (36 cans) of light beer each day. Restrictions also apply to one case (24 cans) of pre-mixed drinks or one cask of wine, up to four litres..."These restrictions are very generous," Chief Superintendent Steve Cullen said in a statement today. "Anyone who needs to drink more than 24 cans of beer in a day to have a good time is not welcome.
As far as I can tell, this law is imposed on those attending - and 30,000 attend apparently - and camping at a four day series of motor car races culminating in the Bathurst 1000. I think the key here is "per person". Who the heck has a group of friends who average 96 beer consumption over a four day period? Who wants to be in the tent next to the guys that do?
Favorite line at this discussion forum on this topic: "24 beers per person per day is enough. If it's not, then you're an alcoholic." Wow. Again, one of the more generous definitions of acceptable limits I have come across yet.
