Question:

Everyone realizes that drinking and driving is not smart and no one is suggesting or condoning the thought. However, this week’s poll asks the following question because some of the local citizens of Las Vegas are trying to get the rules for drinking to change again. These concerned citizens have already in recent years gotten the legal limit to be determined intoxicated from .10 to .08. Now they are suggesting the stopping of serving alcohol on a 24-hour basis throughout Nevada. What is your opinion? Why or Why Not? We want to hear from you!

I really do not like the idea of having someone telling me that I cannot drink around the clock while I am in a casino.   Granted I am not driving, but let the do gooders take care of themselves and let me drink in a casino.  The worst that can happen to me in a controlled environment is not find the elevator to my room.   Larry W.  Miami

I think that would be a bad ideas an "across the board/state" law. Areas where tourists stay or drink should not be under such restrictions, also it should be a community decision. As a regular visitor to Vegas I think that Vegas's "non-stop go" attitude is part of its charm/lure. Furthermore, after most visitors to Vegas have been out drinking til all hours of the night they either walk back to their room, or more importantly catch a cab or limo, which means revenue!   Eva Godfrey  Maumee, OH

There is a small percentage of people that abuse drinking in the USA. To take away this privilege from all of us smacks on social engineering. Lets go back to the Prohibition Days of yesteryear. The law was there in all its glory did it stop drinking? The answer is a matter of record it was repealed in the 1930s. This will result in the same if the law is inacted. Laws are for honest people and that low percentage of drunks will find ways to satisfy their thirst.  Nick Cignetti  North Canton, OH

wow this is a loaded question, because I am a non drinker something like that would never affect me. But on the other hand my boyfriend loves his beer and you try to tell him that not okay good luck. mind you my other half doesn't drink and drive so. And if every one was like this no one would even think about this rule. So in other words people be more responsible and no one would try to take your car and keys away.  Diane Pearce  Burnaby B.C  Canada

Prohibition didn't work the first time and it won't work again. Las Vegas is the Sin City and drinking will always be a part of that. Drinking and driving is a crime and perhaps an increased presence of specialty enforcement with the power to apprehend drunk drivers and seize vehicles might be a deterrant - especially if there were a very high visual presence and publicity involved. Or, the local bars and gaming establishments should be responsible for alcohol monitoring/control.  Heather Miller  Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

No way! As visitors to Las Vegas (we go there at least 4 times a year), we want to be able to let down our hair, party and have a good time. We take taxis or walk everywhere. Like most visitors to this city. Do not let the conservative, do-gooders take over! This is a party town and needs to remain as such.  Jeanine Coghlan  Post Falls, ID

This isn't the roaring 20's during proabition. How can they even consider to ban serving alcohol. Its getting to extream these days. Groups getting together and coming up with ridiulous alternatives backed by lawyers looking to get a name for themselves. Vegas is a party town thats a fact. If no booze is being served there the tumbleweeds will return. get a life and think before you act to those thinking of cutting off serving alcohol. Especially in Vegas.  Ralph  Hamden, CT

Which 24 hour period will alcohol serving be stopped? Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, or Sat?  donald marburger  rockwall, texas

I think the serving of alcohol should be limited and should not be served at night at all because alcohol is not only dangerous to your health, but also it is very dangerous if you are driving. It puts many lives in jeopardy when you are driving. Also,I hope they limit the serving of free alcoholic drinks while gambling because customers are there to play and have fun--not to get drunk.cDrink water instead! Bottom line alcoholic drinks are Very Very Bad For Your Health.  Ann  San Jose, CA

People come to Las Vegas because it is a city that never sleeps. why in the world would the city want to lose their revenue from all of the tourists that come to town for that reason? Not very smart! If the citizens of Las Vegas don;t like where they live than they should move to a city that does sleep at night and isn't referred to as Sin City!  Wanda  St Paul

When you have 24-hr service, some people depend on the availability. If you restrict service to the normal happy hour to closing, (4p-2am) people will adjust by drinking more in the shorter hours. I think there are better ways to control intoxication than restricting service. Of course the dedicated drunk will just buy a bottle, to get him through the dark time. The liquor industry needs to counter-propose some adequate controls, technology, procedures, licensing. Can't shut it down, fix it.  Don  Portland

I don't think it should change. I'm not a drinker but it's nice to know that when I'm in Vegas should I want one at sometime, whether it's morning noon or night, all I have to do is ask for one. To me and I'm sure to thousands of others the whole point of visiting Las Vegas (besides the gambling) is to let loose meet new people and drink and party from sun up to sun down - just a great time in the city that never sleeps! I love Las Vegas - Please Don't Change a Thing!  Lynda Peake  Ann Arbor
