I'm stuggling to decide how I feel about this...Its exciting that that some unforgettable evenings could continue a lil longer...but then there are the nights you wish you could forget that would continue much longer. Last call coming at 4a would have people out drinking stronger and longer. It also opens up the potential to an increase in drunk driving.
"I look at the weekends as an outlet," said Demetrius Jones, a Detroiter. "You got people working hard during the week why can't they enjoy the bars until 4 instead of 2 a.m."
"That's what is happening right now," Hertel says. "If you go down between 2 and 4 a.m. you will find plenty of bars just outside the central business district that are violating the law."
"People are out partying in one way or another," said Marisa, a Metro Detroiter. "Might as well make it legal and do it the right way."
Sen. Hertel says bars that opt to stay open until 4 a.m. would have to a pay a fee of $10,000 that would directly go to the Detroit Police Department.
