Reader: Bars and restaurants enable impaired drivers even when not serving minors
Our post about an Englewood Police operation in which 28 percent of businesses that sell alcohol served minors (by contrast, no medical marijuana operations have been cited for similar offenses) revved up debate about responsible practices. One reader believes even those bars and restaurants that properly card underage patrons deserve scrutiny.
In addition, these same bars and restaurants continue to enable impaired drivers on the road. More than ever, people continue to drive up to these places, go in, get impaired, then drive off. Yeah, I know about the DUI laws, but they don't seem to be working. Check you local news for more information.
