Another pair of innocents pay because of someones utter lack of responsibility or caring for his own actions.:-( So sad, my heart goes out to this family.

Won't stop the alcoholics that NEED to get their car home from the bar.what about something pro active like allowing people to deduct ALL forms of non personal/private transport; taxi, limo, public transportation, to be tax deductible
They tried this, and it was eventually was challenged in court. Cartenders shouldn't have to be babysitters.also make bars responsible for people who drink too much and then drive
