Poll: Should Crate Day be banned?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Hibiscus Coast revellers will be forced to celebrate Crate Day on private property this weekend, as authorities impose a temporary alcohol ban in parks and beaches, following two years of successful bans.
The 48 hour ban on Saturday and Sunday covers beaches, foreshore and reserves between Waiwera and Arkles Bay in north Auckland.
Crate Day was started by The Rock radio station to embark summer by sharing a crate of beers with mates.
However, many participants see it as a challenge to consume the whole crate alone, getting extremely drunk in the process.
Rodney locals are known to go hard on Crate Day, with mess left behind in public places playing a part in the ban (see photo) enforced by police and the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board.
Do you support the temporary liquor ban?
