Commentary on Bicycle Accident on Clayton Lane in Austin

It's serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol in relation to an accident. If that did contribute to this accident, investigators would need to look into where the alcohol came from. This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Whether that's a bar, liquor store, or restaurant, businesses that break the law and contribute to serious accidents should be held accountable, both to help victims and to ensure they clean up their act. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but it's important there are thorough investigations so the evidence can speak for itself.
