Liquor traders, police, council back midnight bus

POLICE, the shire council and business members of the Margaret River liquor accord have come out in support of a midnight bus service to get people home safely after a few drinks on Friday and Saturday nights.

They took the unusual step last week of promoting the service provided by The Chauffeur Bus since Easter, to encourage people to use it rather than attempting to drive after drinking.

Senior Constable Jim Armstrong from Margaret River police said the concept of the night bus was raised through the local liquor accord – a group liquor industry traders including Settlers Tavern, Margaret River Hotel, Knights Inn, Margaret River District Club, the local football club, Must Wine Bar and Wino’s, and the police, the shire council and Health WA through the South West Alcohol and Drug Office.
