SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The ineffective 21-ordinance

By passing the 21-ordinance, Iowa City will face new and possibly more difficult challenges. Now, instead of the majority of the students walking downtown to drink and party, they will drive to house parties in community neighborhoods. This will not only increase the danger for other drivers on the roads, but it will also be a disturbance for non-collegiate residents of Iowa City.

Moreover, the city’s police force will face new difficulties for controlling nightlife because it is no longer contained in the small vicinity of downtown but is instead spread throughout the residential neighborhoods. By enforcing this ordinance, Iowa City is merely redirecting the underage drinking problem to another part of the city.

I believe this is not a productive step toward minimizing underage drinking.
