Queensland government ‘red cards’ anti-social alcohol-related behaviour in new campaign

The Queensland government is targeting anti-social behaviour in a new campaign aimed at reducing alcohol-related bad behaviour in the sunshine state.

Launched last month, the campaign features a variety of adults behaving badly when drinking alcohol before being “red carded” with the tagline “We’re red carding anti-social behaviour” and directing viewers to a government website for information on the safe night out strategy.

Assistant minister for multicultural affairs and Member for Brisbane Central Robert Cavallucci said the Safe Night Out campaign is about taking action to help end unacceptable behaviour.

In a statement he said: “Through the Safe Night Out campaign, we are taking action to help end unacceptable behaviour, with stronger penalties, targeted action by police and new initiatives to educate and prevent drug and alcohol-related violence. Queenslanders have had enough of a good night out being ruined by people who’ve had too much, and so we’re red carding this behaviour.”

The Safe Night Out campaign is part of a wider action plan which sees Queensland introduce new penalties for bad behaviour, increased policing powers, the introduction of ‘Safe Night Precints’, ‘sober safe’ centres and raising awareness of standards of behaviour.
