An email to 2UE’s Stuart Bocking
Good evening Stuart,
Random breath testing isn't anything new at school dances. Whilst I avoided the dances like the plague during high school, I remember students being warned very clearly about the presence of breathalysers prior to many of the dances.
I think it's a good idea. Under-18s shouldn't be drinking anyway, and I would hate to think of the potential repercussions for teachers who could be held legally responsible for drunk teenagers. It's a sensible precaution to my mind.
Have a great night.
