If the readings are not accurate or the patron uses it and comes in just a scant under the limit, goes out, kills someone and then tests way over... who gets to be on the receiving end of the lawsuit

ALWAY'S THE BAR OWNER....ALWAY'S!
EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT THE BAR OWNERS FAULT, IT STILL IS.
THE LAW ALWAY'S MAKES THIS KIND OF THING THE BAR OWNERS FAULT, EVEN IF THE PERSON DRANK IN HIS CAR AFTER THE ACCIDENT. THIS IS AN UNFAIR LAW, AS PEOPLE SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS.

Perhaps they should also put them in their snooty little wine & cheese meet & greet the legislators/fundraisers and various wine tasting events around the state.

I've been to a number of these over the years. Plenty of "stinko" people there. But then.....they're the beautiful people, not your average Joe beer drinker at the local pub.

so tell me this. how does the installation of the breathalyzer in the bar make any difference on the owner of the bar getting sued if the guy drives off and kills someone. The person would be leaving the bar either way. The breathalyzer plays no factor in the situation

The problem is, nobody knows whether they are too drunk to drive. How about a simple and clear rule: If you drink any amount of alcohol at all, you are not allowed to drive.

I believe that they should be manditory. Not only for the patrons to see if they are over the limit, but for patrons that may be already as they arrive, that way the possibility of overserving/ and drunk driving fatalities would be addressed.If they want in,they hafta blow! I believe in order to be able to purchase insurance/ liqour licences they are to be installed. Some I know walked in visibly intoxicated, was served, left wasted, killed his girlfriend in a wreck minutes later. Not one person bothered to call the police as he was leaving to report him, no one tried to take his keys. All the establishment cared about was the money they were making off of him. One person dead, two others injured, a multitude of lives forever affected. The driver is my son.

I see. You want society to bear responsibility for your son's poor decision-making skills, which are the product of your parenting (or, more aptly, the lack thereof). Hurray statism!

Wow, Dave your truly a shi&&y person. It must suck being alone typing on your computer with your sly rhectoric, as you step on a parent who lost a child. Such an intelligent point. Only kids who have bad parents are killed in drunk driving accidents. Your soo smart. Idiot.

Losing a child who drove drunk and killed himself does not grant the parent a license to advocate for stupid ideas unopposed.

Never said that. Not even close. Your reading comprehension skills suck.

[quote] Your soo smart. Idiot.
And your English skills are remedial at best. I think you meant to say, "You're", not "Your". It's hard to feel insulted for being an "idiot" when the person doing the insulting is an idiot himself. Thanks for the laugh.

Wow, good job, Niikkole. Posting as someone else to mock them is so original and creative. Why argue a point when you can just pretend to be someone else and say stupid $h1t? If it weren't for your butchery of our beautiful language you could have fooled people into believing I really wrote that crap.
