The Daily Mail reported that Cambridge McDonalds customers will be breathalysed by security staff before they are allowed entry into the restaurants a part of a new scheme combating anti-social behaviour in the city. Anyone who is over twice the legal drive limit of 35 units will be refused admission.
Is this not just getting a bit over the top? I mean yes I get the concept of the staff being protected from aggressive drunks but surely turning away people will result in the loss of business? I know McDonalds isn’t exactly a small chain but refusal of entry just because someone has had a skinful isn’t exactly going to do them any good. And is only going to result in those who have had a drink going other venues.
Not everyone who will blow over the limit will be an aggressive drunk so why should a few idiots spoil it for others who just want a McDonalds after a night out?
The country is going mad!
