The Launceston Liquor Accord has introduced a new strategy to help control and monitor alcohol consumption in pubs and clubs with the introduction of a ‘yellow card’ system similar to that used in soccer.

Licensees and their employees will issue drunk patrons with a yellow card, which entitles them to a free soft drink and is a warning for them to slow down their alcohol consumption.

Launceston Liquor Accord chairman, Don McQuestin, said that the strategy would help bar staff control patrons' alcohol consumption.
