April 2012: Alcoholism At Large
The later the party, the more people get hurt.
A recent study from Norway highlights the connection between alcohol and violence. The findings show that a one-hour extension of bar closing hours led to an increase of approximately 20 violent cases a night on weekends per 100,000 people, representing an increase in violence of approximately 16 percent per year.
The results also suggest that the effect occurs both ways. In other words, making closing time earlier by one hour leads to a decrease in violence of the same magnitude.
