A motorist travel from town A to town B at an average speed of 54km/h.He returns back at an average speed of 60km/h.The total time taken is 9 and 1/2 hrs. | Wyzant Ask An Expert

Subject

The basic formula for distance, rate, and time is Distance = Rate * Time D = R T So we know two different trips were taken, both with the same distance, but with different times T 1 and T 2 D = 54 T 1 D = 60 T 2 and all we know about the times is that T 1 + T 2 = 9.5 To find D, we’re first going to have to find T 1 and T 2 . Substitute the first equation into the second 54 T 1 = 60 T 2 Now solve for one of them T 1 = 60 T 2 / 54 T 1 = T 2 * 10/9 Now substitute into the sum equation T 1 + T 2 = 9.5 T2 * 10/9 + T 2 = 9.5 Collect T 2 terms T 2 ( 10/9 + 1) = 9.5 T 2 (19/9) = 9.5 Solve for T 2 T 2 = 9.5/(19/9) = 9/2 = 4.5 back to T 1 T 1 + 4.5 = 9.5 T 1 = 5 Finally we can substitute into an equation for D D = 54 T 1 = 54 * 5 = 270

If a motorist travels from a to b at a speed of 40km/hr and returns at speed of 60km/hr, what is his average speed? – Quora

If a motorist travels from a to b at a speed of 40km/hr and returns at speed of 60km/hr, what is his average speed?

This is a very easy question to answer, but I am going to answer it at length, so as to explain the derivation rather than just give it. This is very similar to some of the math used on a naval vessel. We had to work things like this out for calculating things like time, fuel load, exposure (a different tale altogether), and so forth. The most basic representation of this question in its culmination is V = D/T You did not supply 2 of the variables, leaving one to insert his own. The equation is extended beyond the basic by the given variation in speed for each leg of a fixed-distance round trip. The distance between points A & B must be stated; since unsupplied, assume 100 Km. Elapsed time is crucial, as with differing speed given for each leg, elapsed time will vary on each leg, and total elapsed time–another unsupplied variable–must be known to derive average speed over a known, fixed distance. Defining terms: V, speed in kph; D, distance in kilometers;  T, time = hours. Again, basic equation is V = D/T; or, D/V = T; solve for T. 100 km / 40 kph = 2.5 hr. This is leg 1, or A. 100 km / 60 kph = 1.6667 hr. This is keg 2, or B. Now we can average speed between the two legs. Average is the mean between the combination of in this case 2 elements, A and B, legs of travel along a fixed distance. Therefore, since the distance is 100 km, the final equation becomes: 2(D) / (TA + TB) = V 200 /  2.5 + 1.6667 = V 200 / 4.1667 = V 47.9996 = V On any speedometer, this would register as 48 kph.

This question already has good answers, so I’ll just add that the type of average required here is called the harmonic mean. 2/(1/40 + 1/60) = 48 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

Its total distance upon total time ,so let distance between a and b is d so its 2d divided by d/40+d/60 Which comes out to be 48…

One way distance = x x , say. Then total distance = 2 x 2 x .

Time = distance / speed, so total time = x / 60 + x / 40 = x / 60 + x / 40 . So here’s what you need:

2 x x / 60 + x / 40 2 x x / 60 + x / 40

So now let us assume that the distance between a and b will be 120 km ( LCM of 40 and 60 )

Guys just carefully follow this solution and then you can quickly solve these type of questions without much worry.

Ans: We did it because that would make our calculations very easy as we are getting the time in integer values 2 & 3 and not any point value which would increase the calculation time.

DRIVER WARNING: Millions of motorists putting their lives at risk by breaking road rules

Three in five drivers confessed to breaking the speed limit while just over half the cyclists questioned said they had used the pavement, putting pedestrians at risk. The survey for uSwitch.com said one in five pedestrians have put their own lives at risk by failing to look both ways before crossing the road.

Three in five drivers confessed to breaking the speed limit while just over half the cyclists questioned said they had used the pavement, putting pedestrians at risk. The survey for uSwitch.com said one in five pedestrians have put their own lives at risk by failing to look both ways before crossing the road.

A second poll by AA Cars said that more than two million motorists forgot to renew their car’s MoT ion the past five years, despite the risk of a £1,000 fine. As one in three cars failed their MoT in the past year, this suggests many forgetful motorists are travelling in unroadworthy cars.

This in turn puts the motorist at risk not only of a dangerous breakdown but also a fine of up to £2,500. The results were released ahead of the Easter getaway when 20million motorists re expected to take to the roads.

After its poll uSwitch.com called for the Highway Code to be taught in schools to prepare everyone to use the roads safely.

It’s clear there’s a lack of understanding of the Highway Code among drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, and the consequences could be fatal, even before you think about the financial and legal risks.

Rod Jones

Its survey of 2,000 adults found that 21 per cent of motorists and 27 per cent of cyclists admitted going through a red light in the past year.

Despite new rules which have doubled the penalty[ for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving to six points and £200, 29 per cent have done so in the past year.

But despite the poll’s findings only one in three think they have broken the Highway Code.

Rod Jones, insurance expert at uSwitch.com, says: “It’s clear there’s a lack of understanding of the Highway Code among drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, and the consequences could be fatal, even before you think about the financial and legal risks.

“It’s essential that we reacquaint ourselves with the rules to ensure everyone stays safe while on the road.

“Even as pedestrians we have a responsibility for the safety of others and will often face the same risks – which can be complicated and worthy of better understanding from an early age.

“Positively, there is a general consensus that more needs to be done in terms of Highway Code education.

“Starting this with school lessons on road safety is a strong forward step to making our highways safer for everyone, whether they are behind the wheel, on two wheels or walking the streets.”

The AA survey of 21,000 drivers found that two million drivers forgot to renew their MoT up to a week and one million by up to a month.

Figures from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency show that over one in three cars fail their initial MoT tests.

And the AA poll found that nearly two million drivers whose cars had an MoT were alerted to a serious fault.

Simon Benson, Director of Motoring Services at AA Cars, says: “For drivers across the country, MOT tests should be part and parcel of car ownership – or so we’d have thought.

“Despite the MOT test being an annual statutory obligation for cars over the age of three, it’s the sort of thing that can easily slip through the cracks.

“It is crucial that drivers book their test in advance – they are not just a routine checkup, but a legal imperative to make sure your car is still fit to be on the road.

Underinsured, hit-and-run, phantom vehicle coverage to be provided — Purpose — Definitions — Exceptions — Conditions — Deductibles — Information on motorcycle or motor-driven cycle coverage — Intended victims.

(1) “Underinsured motor vehicle” means a motor vehicle with respect to the ownership, maintenance, or use of which either no bodily injury or property damage liability bond or insurance policy applies at the time of an accident, or with respect to which the sum of the limits of liability under all bodily injury or property damage liability bonds and insurance policies applicable to a covered person after an accident is less than the applicable damages which the covered person is legally entitled to recover.

(2) No new policy or renewal of an existing policy insuring against loss resulting from liability imposed by law for bodily injury, death, or property damage, suffered by any person arising out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle shall be issued with respect to any motor vehicle registered or principally garaged in this state unless coverage is provided therein or supplemental thereto for the protection of persons insured thereunder who are legally entitled to recover damages from owners or operators of underinsured motor vehicles, hit-and-run motor vehicles, and phantom vehicles because of bodily injury, death, or property damage, resulting therefrom, except while operating or occupying a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle, and except while operating or occupying a motor vehicle owned or available for the regular use by the named insured or any family member, and which is not insured under the liability coverage of the policy. The coverage required to be offered under this chapter is not applicable to general liability policies, commonly known as umbrella policies, or other policies which apply only as excess to the insurance directly applicable to the vehicle insured.

(3) Except as to property damage, coverage required under subsection (2) of this section shall be in the same amount as the insured’s third party liability coverage unless the insured rejects all or part of the coverage as provided in subsection (4) of this section. Coverage for property damage need only be issued in conjunction with coverage for bodily injury or death. Property damage coverage required under subsection (2) of this section shall mean physical damage to the insured motor vehicle unless the policy specifically provides coverage for the contents thereof or other forms of property damage.

(4) A named insured or spouse may reject, in writing, underinsured coverage for bodily injury or death, or property damage, and the requirements of subsections (2) and (3) of this section shall not apply. If a named insured or spouse has rejected underinsured coverage, such coverage shall not be included in any supplemental or renewal policy unless a named insured or spouse subsequently requests such coverage in writing. The requirement of a written rejection under this subsection shall apply only to the original issuance of policies issued after July 24, 1983, and not to any renewal or replacement policy. When a named insured or spouse chooses a property damage coverage that is less than the insured’s third party liability coverage for property damage, a written rejection is not required.

(5) The limit of liability under the policy coverage may be defined as the maximum limits of liability for all damages resulting from any one accident regardless of the number of covered persons, claims made, or vehicles or premiums shown on the policy, or premiums paid, or vehicles involved in an accident.

(6) The policy may provide that if an injured person has other similar insurance available to him or her under other policies, the total limits of liability of all coverages shall not exceed the higher of the applicable limits of the respective coverages.

(7)(a) The policy may provide for a deductible of not more than three hundred dollars for payment for property damage when the damage is caused by a hit-and-run driver or a phantom vehicle.

(b) In all other cases of underinsured property damage coverage, the policy may provide for a deductible of not more than one hundred dollars.

(8) For the purposes of this chapter, a “phantom vehicle” shall mean a motor vehicle which causes bodily injury, death, or property damage to an insured and has no physical contact with the insured or the vehicle which the insured is occupying at the time of the accident if:

(a) The facts of the accident can be corroborated by competent evidence other than the testimony of the insured or any person having an underinsured motorist claim resulting from the accident; and

(b) The accident has been reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency within seventy-two hours of the accident.

(9) An insurer who elects to write motorcycle or motor-driven cycle insurance in this state must provide information to prospective insureds about the coverage.

(10) An insurer who elects to write motorcycle or motor-driven cycle insurance in this state must provide an opportunity for named insureds, who have purchased liability coverage for a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle, to reject underinsured coverage for that motorcycle or motor-driven cycle in writing.

(11) If the covered person seeking underinsured motorist coverage under this section was the intended victim of the tort feasor, the incident must be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency and the covered person must cooperate with any related law enforcement investigation.

(12) The purpose of this section is to protect innocent victims of motorists of underinsured motor vehicles. Covered persons are entitled to coverage without regard to whether an incident was intentionally caused. However, a person is not entitled to coverage if the insurer can demonstrate that the covered person intended to cause the event for which a claim is made under the coverage described in this section. As used in this section, and in the section of policies providing the underinsured motorist coverage described in this section, “accident” means an occurrence that is unexpected and unintended from the standpoint of the covered person.

(13) The coverage under this section may be excluded as provided for under RCW 48.177.010 (6).

(14) “Underinsured coverage,” for the purposes of this section, means coverage for “underinsured motor vehicles,” as defined in subsection (1) of this section.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists in Washington

Washington Law requires all car and truck drivers to carry liability auto insurance coverage. It is illegal to drive without auto insurance. See RCW 46.30.020. At minimum, the insurance policy must cover at least $25,000 of injury damages if someone causes a crash and hurts one other person.

Washington Law requires all car and truck drivers to carry liability auto insurance coverage. It is illegal to drive without auto insurance. See RCW 46.30.020. At minimum, the insurance policy must cover at least $25,000 of injury damages if someone causes a crash and hurts one other person. If someone causes a crash and hurts 2 or more people, the insurance policy must provide at least $50,000 to be shared between all injured parties. We recommend that drivers carry more than the minimum required by law. For more information on auto insurance, see our page, The Ins and Outs of Auto Insurance.

In many cases, $25,000 or $50,000 is insufficient to fully compensate those injured in a car crash, depending on the amount of medical bills, lost wages, pain and disability. Even though it is against the law, sometimes there are people on the road who don’t have any insurance.

What is underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage?

Underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage is a type of coverage obtained through your own auto insurance company. UIM coverage kicks in if you are injured in a car crash caused by someone else’s negligence, and either (1) that person does not have auto insurance, or (2) that person’s auto insurance policy does not provide enough coverage to fully compensate you. We recommend that all drivers have UIM coverage. Generally we recommend a minimum of $100,000 in underinsured motorist coverage.

Why have UIM coverage?

While the State of Washington does not require drivers to carry UIM coverage, it is often in your best interest to do so. Underinsured motorist coverage is important because, if you are injured in a crash caused by someone who has insufficient insurance coverage, it is often unrealistic to pursue recovery beyond the person’s insurance policy limits. After the negligent driver’s insurance company has paid its policy limits, the insurance company is usually off the hook for additional compensation. Any additional recovery must be collected directly from the negligent driver, and most people simply do not have the money to pay large sums out of pocket. Even if you are awarded a large judgment in court, you cannot collect what the defendant does not have.

UIM coverage also comes into play in the hit-and-run collision context. If you are injured in a hit-and-run crash and are unable to identify the negligent driver who fled the scene, you are likely entitled to recovery from your UIM policy.

Absent UIM coverage, you are at risk of being left uncompensated for injuries caused by another driver’s negligence.

How do I make a UIM claim?

As soon as the crash occurs, we recommend that you notify your own insurance company right away. Many insurance policies require prompt notice the UIM carrier in order to obtain compensation. Otherwise, your insurance company might try to deny coverage.

Most of the time, you must recover the negligent driver’s insurance policy limits before receiving compensation under your UIM policy. If the other driver does not have insurance, your UIM carrier will probably require evidence that the other driver was uninsured before the paying UIM benefits. UIM coverage is considered secondary to the other driver’s liability coverage.

If you receive a policy limits offer from the liability insurance carrier, you should obtain the consent of your UIM carrier before accepting the settlement. If you accept the liability policy limits without first getting approval from your UIM carrier, you may lose the right to recover additional money under the UIM policy. This type of procedural hurdle exemplifies why it is wise to have a lawyer handle your case.

After obtaining the liability policy limits, or providing proof that the negligent party has no insurance, your own insurance company “steps into the shoes of the defendant.” Your insurance company becomes responsible for the balance of your uncompensated damages, up to your UIM policy limits. Unfortunately, however, most insurance companies seek to pay the minimum amount possible. To recover under your UIM policy you will have to prove the other driver’s fault and the extent of your injuries, just as if you were proceeding directly against the other driver.

Without a qualified attorney, you may end up receiving for far less than you are entitled to under the UIM policy. In addition, there are specific procedures you must follow to file a UIM claim. If you don’t follow them, you could waive your right to any compensation at all.

Examples

Sometimes it is easiest to understand a concept by seeing examples. Below are examples of how UIM coverage would apply in three different situations:

  1. Amy is injured in a crash caused by Bart’s negligence. Bart has $25,000 in liability coverage, but Amy’s claim is valued at $75,000. Amy has $100,000 in UIM coverage. Amy would be entitled to recover $25,000 from Bart’s insurance company, and the remaining $50,000 from her own insurance company under the UIM policy (total recovery $75,000).
  2. Cal is injured in a crash caused by Daria’s negligence. Daria has no insurance. Cal has $500,000 in UIM coverage. Cal’s injuries are severe and his claim is worth $450,000. Cal would be entitled to recover the full $450,000 under his UIM policy.
  3. Ellen is injured in a crash caused by Frank’s negligence. Frank has $25,000 in liability coverage, but Ellen’s injuries are severe and her claim is worth $300,000. Ellen has $100,000 in UIM coverage. Ellen would be entitled to recover $25,000 from Frank’s insurance company, and an additional $100,000 from her own insurance company (total compensation $125,000). Since the value of Ellen’s claim exceeds both insurance policies combined, Ellen will not likely be able to recover the full value of her claim.






10 Reasons to Love MarketFront

It Sees the Waterfront’s Future

Currently, those outdoor plazas overlook Alaskan Way traffic. But MarketFront’s design is meant to connect Pike Place Market with the waterfront once the viaduct is gone.

Educational Chocolate

Free samples are always fun, but the ones from Indi Chocolate really do illustrate how cacao beans possess distinct flavor notes, just like wine.

Self-Respecting Selfies

If you must do it, there’s no better vantage point than the new plaza, a choose-your-own visual adventure of skyline, mountain, Seattle Great Wheel, ferries, water, and even more mountains.

Little Fish…Eventually

A leak caused some construction delays for this forthcoming MarketFront restaurant where chef Zoi Antonitsas will preserve and serve seafood. It’s slated to debut later this year.

Billie Finally Gets Some Love

Rachel the Piggy Bank’s cousin, previously banished to relative anonymity on Western Avenue, now has a prominent home with a view.

It’s a Big, Broad Secret

MarketFront adds the sort of open space sorely absent in the original Pike Place Market. And yet you could wander those crowded halls for hours and never know this new wing exists.

A Biscuit Journey

Honest Biscuits began as a farmers market stall, graduated to a slot in Pike Place Market’s atrium, then expanded to sleek new digs in MarketFront’s Producers Hall.

Summer Concerts in the Pavilion

Every summer, Downtown Summer Sounds concerts bring free, all-ages, daytime shows to outdoor locations in the city center. This year the market hosts two months of concerts, including local acts like Bleachbear and Parisalexa.

Neighborhood Amenities for Actual Neighbors

More low-income senior housing and a new social services center reinforce the market’s role as a proper city neighborhood.

Beer With a View

Old Stove Brewing pours peach sours and smoked porters (made right here in the market) against an incredible scenic backdrop.






Top 10 Reasons to Love Seattle Southside

Where do I start? I might be biased, but there are plenty of reasons to love Seattle Southside. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, there’s just so much to love about this area. Here’s a list of ten reasons to

Where do I start? I might be biased, but there are plenty of reasons to love Seattle Southside. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, there’s just so much to love about this area. Here’s a list of ten reasons to love Seattle Southside.

10) Location

Nestled along Puget Sound in Western Washington, Seattle Southside is centrally located between Seattle and Tacoma. The three cities of SeaTac, Tukwila, & Des Moines compromise the area also known as “Seattle’s Backyard.” There’s plenty to experience here, not to mention, everything else that’s just a stone’s throw away from the airport. Take a short trip up north to Downtown Seattle on the Link Light Rail, take a tour with Tours Northwest to Mount Rainier National Park, or take a tour of the San Juan Islands on a Victoria Clipper.

9) Festivals & Events

Seattleites love their festivals, and that feeling extends to Seattle Southsiders as well. Do you like comicons? Every year, the DoubleTree in SeaTac hosts Aki Con for anime enthusiasts, Crypticon for horror buffs and since 1978, Norwescon has been a comicon juggernaut for fans of fantasy & sci-fi. We’ve got the Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Fest every summer on the shores of Puget Sound, the delicious Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market, the stellar UFO Festival in Burien, Hops & Props at the Museum of Flight, 4 th of July at Fort Dent Park, and that’s not even scratching the surface of all the exciting events in Seattle Southside and Western Washington.

8) Shopping

Shopping ’till you drop is quite possible in Seattle Southside. In fact, that could probably be accomplished at one place: Westfield Southcenter. Westfield Southcenter is the largest shopping center in Washington State, and is home to dozens of boutique shops, big box stores, restaurants, and even an AMC theatre. Step out of Westfield and the shopping options continue in the Southcenter area with jewelry, books, recreation and sports stores and so much more.

7) Connectivity

This sort of goes along with location. You really don’t need a car in Seattle Southside to get to where you want to go. The Link Light Rail goes as far south as Angle Lake and as far north as Husky stadium, making travel to downtown Seattle a breeze. Staying in a hotel in SeaTac? Take the free Southside Express mall shuttle to Westfield Southcenter for all your shopping and entertainment needs. If you’re looking to get out into the evergreen side of the Evergreen State, take a tour with Tours Northwest or Customized Tours to Mount Rainier or Snoqualmie Falls.

6) Affordability

There’s no doubt about it, downtown Seattle is expensive. Whether you’re talking about parking fees, hotel rates, or anything travel related, it’s going to cost you a bit more up there. Seattle Southside has over 50 value-priced hotels, with rates typically 20-30% less than their downtown counterparts. Even if downtown Seattle is your priority, you’re just a quick light rail ride away. Trust me…you didn’t want to pay to park in Seattle anyway…

5) Sports

We’ve got’em. Head down to the sports megacomplex, Starfire Sports, and watch the Seattle Sounders practice or play a game yourself! Also, coming to Seattle Southside in 2018, Starfire Sports will be home to the Seattle Seawolves, one of the founding teams of Major League Rugby in the United States. If you’re a thrill seeker, you need to try indoor skydiving at iFLY Seattle. Looking for a leisurely game of golf? Play 18 holes at Foster Golf Links along the Duwamish River. Of course, if you want to catch a Seahawks or Mariners game, the stadiums are just a quick light rail ride away. I’m sensing a theme here…

4) Family Fun

Seattle Southside has always been a great destination for families. The hotels are family friendly, there’s a great selection of restaurants, but the main draw for families and kids would have to be the attractions. You can take to the skies on one of the Museum of Flight’s flight simulators, or iFLY Seattle’s vertical wind tunnel (they cater to ages 3-103). Spend a day at Family Fun Center with go-karts, batting cages, mini golf, and more. Bowl and game to your heart’s desire at ACME Bowl and Round 1 Entertainment. Experience the future of laser tag and virtual reality at Virtual Sports. Take a sweet factory tour of Seattle Chocolates and sample some delectable delights. After a day of fun, head to California Pizza Kitchen or Bahama Breeze for a dinner the whole family can agree on.

3) Cuisine

Speaking of dinner, Seattle Southside is home to a world-class dining scene. The emphasis should be on “world,” as the international dining scene is booming! We’ve got Din Tai Fung’s famous Taiwanese dumplings, Arashi Ramen’s savory tantan men, shrimp & chorizo tacos at Moctezuma, sweet crispy garlic chicken at Bai Tong, rich Ethiopian coffee at Star Coffee and so much more. Also, you can’t come to the Pacific Northwest and not try some fresh seafood. Try the chowder at Salty’s at Redondo, Anthony’s HomePort, and Duke’s Chowder House and tell me which one you prefer. I can never decide…

2) Diversity

We’re proud of our cultural and ethnic diversity in Seattle Southside. People from all around the world have laid roots in our cities and now call Seattle Southside home. In fact, residents of SeaTac, Tukwila, and Des Moines speak over 80 languages, with the Tukwila School District owning the distinction of being the most diverse in the entire country. So yes, we are about as diverse as it gets and we’re proud of it! I guess this would also partly explain our amazing international restaurant scene…

Anti-bikie laws worry hospitality workers

Updated January 26, 2016 09:46:12

Pub owners and hospitality staff fear changes to liquor licensing under Queensland’s new anti-bikie legislation could make it harder for them to do their jobs.

The new legislation bans individuals wearing any clothing or accessories that display names or club patches of declared criminal organisations from entering or remaining on licensed premises.

Licensees and employees can be fined $11,000 for knowingly allowing people who break this law to remain on the premises.

Greg Maitland, chief executive of the Independent Pub Group (IPG), says he is fully supportive of Premier Campbell Newman’s crackdown on outlaw motorcycle gangs but is concerned about how his staff will go about removing bikies from pubs.

“We have concerns around removing someone because that puts us in a position to police that. I think there’s unrealistic expectations there,” Mr Maitland said.

Safety concerns for hospitality staff

The legislation outlines 26 declared criminal organisations and provides a list of the patches of the gangs.

“The point is not necessarily the identification of these bikies but the removal of people who break the law,” Mr Maitland said.

“To expect a young duty manager to remove a 120kg bikie standing at the door is a big ask.”

Brisbane restaurant manager Matt Tarrant says his staff are all familiar with the new laws, but some have voiced concerns about how to approach any individuals breaking these laws.

“We received an email from the Government and sent it around to all the staff, so they know what to look for,” Mr Tarrant said.

“But some of them have said they would have trouble asking people to leave. Bikies can be quite intimidating.

“I think some staff would probably hesitate.

“But if we had any problems we would call the police anyway, that’s what they’re there for.”

Mr Maitland, whose company IPG owns four licensed venues in Queensland, says it is unreasonable to penalise pub and hotel owners.

“It seems mighty hard to enforce and that’s where the issue sits for me. Why should I as the owner of the establishment get fined?

“We have to be the police and in this case it’s pretty unreasonable.”

However Queensland Hotels Association CEO Justin O’Connor says the new rules do not represent a major change to the way licensed premises currently operate.

“The liquor act already provides categories of individuals who are not allowed to be served, for example minors, those unduly intoxicated, and unruly or violent individuals,” Mr O’Connor said.

“The practical effect of these changes is simply adding another category to that list of people who are not allowed to be served.

“Our advice to members of the QHA is essentially that normal protocols should be applied, and if there is any resistance to these new laws then the next step is to call the police to intervene.”

Confusion over which bikies to refuse entry to

Mr O’Connor says the QHA issued advice to its members emphasising that a bikie who leaves his colours outside and enters the licensed premises in ordinary clothing is not committing an offence under the new laws.

“There is an area of confusion in some people thinking all members of bikie gangs should be refused service, when this applies only to those displaying outlaw gang colours or logos,” he said.

“So there’s an element of confusion in the early stages of the legislation but we expect that to become clearer.

“We’ve recommended the new changes be incorporated into regular staff training. It would be a good idea to revisit the normal protocols for refusal of service as well.”

Licensed premises and Declared Criminal Organisations

The Liquor Licensing Act 1997 prohibits people from entering or remaining on licensed premises if they are wearing or carrying certain prohibited items associated with declared criminal organisations (often called ‘bikie gangs’). These changes also impose restrictions on licensees, responsible persons and their employees.

A person is committing a criminal offence if they enter or remain in licensed premises while they are wearing or carrying a prohibited item, which is clothing, jewellery or an accessory that displays the name of, or a symbol representing, a declared criminal organisation. They are also committing an offence if they refuse to leave licensed premises when asked to do so by management or the police.

Importantly, licensees, responsible persons and their employees are also committing a criminal offence if they allow a person who is wearing or carrying a prohibited item to enter or remain on licensed premises. Licensees, responsible persons and employees can avoid committing an offence if they call the police and report the person. If such a call is made, the police must respond. Police have advised that calls should be made to 131 444.

Licensees are advised to make all staff aware of the law and to include it in their Liquor Management Plan as required under the General Code of Practice, to reflect the provisions. Staff need to be trained in the management plan to ensure that they are aware of the relevant procedures.

Consumer and Business Services has signage that will assist licensees to notify the public about the laws.

All outlaw motorcycle gangs with a presence in South Australia are declared. South Australia Police have a poster with the logos of the declared criminal organisations as well as examples of the prohibited items which cannot be taken onto licensed premises.
