Backers to Ban Booze on SD Beaches Rally

With Election Day just around the corner, supporters of Proposition D in San Diego rallied in Pacific Beach on Saturday to get their point across - no booze on the beaches.

Local residents, politicians and safety personnel spoke to the crowd, who are hoping to pass Prop D on Tuesday.

According to a member of the Police Officers Association, alcohol-related incidents are down nearly 20 percent since the temporary ban was enacted at the start of the year.

A few who say no to Prop D also turned out, claiming that banning booze on the beaches makes
providing alcohol at weddings, reunions and other festivities difficult in requiring special fees and fencing.
