    How about…every bar required to have a parking attendant/security guard how keeps patrons keys…and requires a passing breathalyzer to get your keys back

    How about they stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. and stay open until 7. This gives time for people to meander out as well as sober up before leaving the establishment.

      Of course when the government pays the rent they can have a staffer babysit drunkards after closing. Great business model.

    I owned a Tavern for 9 years and very seldom did we take a last call. People would load up on beer/whiskey and it made more liability for us.

    Bar establishments shouldn’t have to worry if they would cut them off if they had enough to drink. That’s the law and the bar can get into trouble now a days if they knew that person was extremely drunk but still served them just because it was a paying customer
