It is accidents like this one that tell us why we need adequate liquor liability laws all over the country. Many people do not know that many states have liquor liability laws, or ‘dram shop laws’ that ensure restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and liquor stores sell alcohol in a responsible fashion. What constitutes the irresponsible sale of alcohol? Whenever a bar severs somebody too much to drink and they are visibly intoxicated, more than likely they have violated their promise to the state to serve liquor responsibly in exchange for the bar’s license to serve. If a drunk driver is found to have been over-served, the bar can and should be held accountable for the accident. Once bars start seeing drunk drivers as a liability will the drunk driving statistics hopefully level off.
