Dr. Rosay quoted in ADN article on "safety hour" for bars

Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, was quoted in the October 17, 2009 Anchorage Daily News article about the Anchorage Assembly's consideration of a "safety hour" for bars. The proposed ordinance would allow bars to keep their doors open one hour after official closing time to allow more time for people to get cabs and get home safely. Dr. Rosay noted that the Justice Center has not specifically researched whether its data supports the proposed ordinance, but statistics indicate a safety hour could help.
