I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, states that do not have adequate liquor liability laws really need to get with the program, and the rest of the country. In the State of Texas, lawmakers saw the danger in an unregulated liquor industry, and saw fit to govern it with a set of liquor liability laws, or dram shop laws that hold alcohol businesses to a higher standard than before. This means, if a bar servers a sober customer to the point of gross intoxication, or serve alcohol to an already drunk individual, they are potentially liable for any accident that customer causes. Bars will only see drunk drivers as a liability if they are held liable for drunk driving accidents they helped cause.
