Late night street activity in Sydney plunges, report finds

Fewer people are staying out late at night in the Sydney CBD and surrounding precincts, while antisocial behaviour has continued to decline, a City of Sydney report has found.

The study paints a picture of how the 1.30am lockout and 3am "last drinks" laws are changing the city's nightlife, suggesting they have reduced the number of late-night revellers on the city's streets while contributing to an ongoing decrease in violence and drunken antics.
