Providing free public transport for people leaving clubs late at night could help prevent alcohol-related violence, an inquiry has heard.
A Queensland parliamentary committee is on Friday taking evidence in its inquiry into ways to tackle alcohol-related violence.
Clubs Queensland chief executive Doug Flockhart said a common sense approach was needed to stem violence, not new regulations and laws.
Mr Flockhart said governments and councils needed to treat each night of operation in entertainment precincts as a special event.
He said special events such as football matches involved free transport and other amenities.
"Complimentary transport solutions at exit times and adequate amenities in the vicinity of entertainment venues would go a long way toward improving public safety," Mr Flockhart said.
"Safely and efficiently moving people on are matters that are taken into account for a Broncos match or Riverfire, yet the large crowds that are congregating in places like the Valley, or Cavill Avenue on the Gold Coast, are largely ignored."
He said many community clubs were struggling financially and would be burdened by any new regulation.
The inquiry continues.
