Lets update the VIA byron plan. There’s more to gloat for Byron Residents. We are the best place to get bashed on the North Coast, with 2.2 times as many chances as anywhere else in NSW.
Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) released their annual report last week, revealing Byron as the clear loser in many respects. As out of town liquor dealers supply visitors with alcohol late into the night, our friends and families suffer the consequences.
Byron reported 67 indecent assaults, (2.5 times the state average) and 314 non-domestic assaults in 2013.
Its time curb the junk tourists. Restrictive diets of reduced drinking hours are proven to turn away douche bags by 20% for each hour of reduced alcohol trading.
Our best opportunity to increase the size and quality of smiles in Byron is to make Local Liquor Accord membership mandatory for licensed venues.
