Another D.U.I.... when will people wake up ? Why are bars allowed to stay open ... almost until dawn ? This simply encourages people to continue to drink .... almost 'til sunrise. Furthermore .... I question why we even have bars ? Other counties in other states actually require you to order a complete meal ... if you wish to purchase alcohol. There are no simple bar rooms.
I am not a prude, nor am I a teetotaler. However I do question why bars are allowed to stay open almost all night.
I also question why we even have bars at all. It would be so much safer, much more civilized, and more mature if alcoholic drinks were available for sale only when purchasing a complete meal. A revamping of our current liquor laws would make our highways much, much safer.
How sad to know that a hardworking young man has lost his life because of a businessman who kept pouring drinks into a person who obviously was already on verge of intoxication. The almighty dollar was more important to the bar owner bar .... than highway safety .

Don't you think it should be up to people to know when to stop drinking? Or better yet make sure they have a designated driver or take a taxi? I mean I know it's easy to blame the bars for staying open and such, but seriously it's not their fault that people are generally irresponsible?

I am responding to this because its a topic i feel strongly about.Sure people should stop and be responsible but if they are not.The bartender or waitress should shut them off!!!!!! if they are there for hours and drinking like that they should be limited in how much they are served. End of story. The bars are responsible also they dont have to keep them coming especially if some one shows signs of becoming intoxicated.
