10 pm Closing


A uniform closing time is producing crowds of garrulous people outside recently closed pubs and restaurants. Total closure of such establishments would make things difficult for people who travel for work or other good reasons. I suggest that we should instead allow eating places to remain open as long as they like, but forbid them to sell alcohol. I believe that sober people would behave less recklessly than tipsy revelers.

We do have alcohol limits for drivers. Why not for everyone in a public place? Those wishing to drown their inhibitions could do so at home, and have virtual pub crawls in a specially designed computer game.
