Since The Lockout Laws Began These Are Now The Most Violent Suburbs In Sydney

It has been three years since we were first hit with the lockout laws in the Sydney CBD. 

We saw the change of the no bar entry after 1:30am and no serving of alcohol past 3am.

The closing time of the bars isn't the only change that Sydney has faced since 2014. 

Suburbs just out of the city have seen an extreme increase in alcohol-fuelled violence.

Over the weekend, The Daily Telegraph reported that in Kings Cross alcohol-related violence assaults has decreased by 32 per cent and in the CBD overall, it has decreased by 26 per cent.

Sadly, this has resulted in Newtown’s non-domestic assaults rising almost 10 per cent since the change. 

Gina Daimty, who is a Newtown local, stated to The Telegraph that she has seen a major change in her suburb since the lockout laws began.

She has noticed that people who started their night in the city now continue their partying on King St in Newtown instead of staying in the CBD.

The Telegraph also reported that Erskineville is dealing with a similar result in violence due to the lockout laws.
