    Don't really see how this is the businesses fault. People go to bars to get drunk that's their business, they have no control over what a customer does after they leave.

    Not exactly, or even close.

    People at the bar serve you. An accurate analogy would be blaming the monster truck.

    Texas has dram shop laws and TABC licensees know it. There is seller training and the sellers know the law. When the licensees and employees don't care if a person drinks too much so they can earn more profit they take on accountability and liability.

    As well they should

    I know where you're coming from, but I'll play devils advocate. Define "too much" As BAC levels continue to decrease, would any 51% establishment survive if they had a one or two drink maximum? And why should it be against any policy if someone wants to go out and tie one on, as long as they don't drive? Does the training include figuring out if the person has other means of transportation?

    I'm not by any means trying to justify what the driver of the truck in this story did, but our laws are screwed up. If we were serious about stopping drunk driving, we would stop wasting time trying to train bartenders (who make tips off of people drinking) into recognizing drunks and we would start putting officers in the parking lots of bars and train them to recognize drunks and keep them off the road.

    Nah, it's too simple to sit outside the bars every weekend and arrest all the drunks.

    who said anything about one or two drink minimums? And yes, serving people to intoxication should be prohibited. For many reasons. What do you mean by BQC levels continue to decrease?
    So have the cops manage the drunks? Really?
