Nightclubs need to be regulated
ONE of the complaints about nightclubs in residential areas refers to the high decibel sounds, robbing residents of peaceful sleep.
Rights and duties are two sides of the same coin; it’s one’s duty to ensure that his rights never come in the way of others’ rights.
First, nightclubs can be sensitive to the feelings of their neighbours and try to reduce the volume of the music.
Secondly, they can consider restricting the time of operation.
Thirdly, new nightclubs can be permitted to operate at least half a kilometre away from the residential areas.
Fourthly, the existing nightclubs in residential areas can sound-proof the premises by using modern technology.
Fifthly, the clubs can ensure that the drunk customers go directly home without creating nuisance for the people outside.
Sixthly, clear guidelines could be issued to the nightclubs about their responsibilities.
Finally, nightclubs should display the regulations to be strictly followed by their clients.
