So in Alice there are certain areas that alcohol is not allowed. I know how contentious a subject that this is but the truth of the matter is, it's needed. There's still a lot of alcohol abuse over here and generally speaking the only thing that is thrown around to deal with the problem is money. Really maybe social services should be enforced.
Even when you buy alcohol you need to show your license so that it can be scanned in to a computer system and away it goes. If you buy too much grog, then that's it, you're cut off. While it's an odd thing for most people to see, it's pretty common for those of us in Alice to see signs like this everywhere especially on aboriginal communities.
