Survey Shows Pre-Loading Rife Among Young People



The latest annual alcohol poll by FARE (Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education) found that only 38 per cent of young people were asked for their IDs when buying alcohol.

It also found that pre-loading and drinking with the intent of getting drunk were still rife among Generation Yers.

The poll also showed that of the young people aged 18 to 34 years who drank, 25 per cent had consumed enough to vomit and 9 per cent had passed out.

These statistics are concerning because they indicate that many alcohol servers aren’t abiding by Responsible Service of Alcohol rules.
