McDonald’s provides some of the world’s favorite drunk foods, but one U.K. restaurant is doing its best to keep inebriated customers from getting nuggets and will actually be rolling out a breathalyzer in an attempt to keep drunk patrons out.
According to The Mirror, a McDonald’s in Cambridge is open 24 hours on weekends, but will no longer be a respite for late-night pub-crawlers, as the location is preparing to test patrons for inebriation. Anybody who is shown to have a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit will be refused access to Big Macs and McNuggets. The alcohol-testing kits will also identify patrons who want to have alcohol with their food and bring in soda bottles spiked with liquor.
The effort is allegedly part of a push to combat excessive drinking, but students at the nearby university do not seem to be particularly thrilled by the news.
“This new measure is a flagrant and horrific violation of our human rights,” said Cambridge University freshman Declan Amphlett. “We’ll have to resort to smuggling sandwiches into clubs like a really primary school version of the drugs trade.”
