Gulf Shores, Alabama, has banned alcohol on its beaches for the remainder of spring break, meaning effective immediately.

From AL.com:

During a special meeting on Friday, the council unanimously adopted an ordinance to prohibit the possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages along the entire Gulf beaches within city limits. The ban is in effect through April 17.

Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft spoke previously about such a ban, saying excessive alcohol consumption was becoming a problem.

“The city has a responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of our residents and visitors and an obligation to protect the reputation of the city as a family-friendly destination,” said Craft. “In order to keep spring break in Gulf Shores a safe environment, it is time we take action.”

Panama City Beach, Florida, made national headlines last year by announcing a similar ban for spring break 2016. The news was ill-received by all of you horny, alcoholic, barbaric college students planning to destroy the PCB beaches this year.

And now, the second most popular American spring break beach destination is following suit. There’s only so much beach sex, jail cell space, bloody brawls, and scattered beer cans a town can endure before they have to pull the plug. Eventually it’s simply time to keep the riffraff out of the beach community.

For a list of schools either starting their spring breaks now or have yet to begin theirs, and could potentially be screwed by this sudden change, click here.
