Prague To Ban Alcohol In Some Public Places

In Law on May 29, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged:

Subway entrance and exit halls/hallways, selected squares, parks, or streets that border cemeteries. These are just examples of places in Prague where alcohol drinking should be banned, the iDNES.cz news server writes. The Prague Municipality is not the first one to implement this ban, several smaller cities throughout the country have done it already.

Councillors must elaborate a detailed list of places, as a total ban would not be constitutional [or legal on other levels]. In principle, such regulations consider exceptions, like festivals, markets, open-air concerts etc.

And smart-asses can forget the bottle-in-a-brown-bag solution. Also illegal…

Excellent idea. This should make the drunks who like to bother people, well, stop.

The regulation should become effective as of July 1.

UPDATE: And one more regulation should sanction people who throw away chewing gums and cigarette butts. Inspired by Singapore, maybe??
