Commentary on Bicycle, Police Vehicle Accident on West Martin in San Antonio

I saw someone comment on this story with something along the lines of assuming the bicyclist was drunk. Just to be clear, we don't know what happened here, and we shouldn't jump to conclusions. But it's easy to see why someone might think alcohol was a factor here. 2:00 a.m. in downtown San Antonio is going to be a hot spot for people under the influence of alcohol. But this isn't just for speculating and blaming people. It's actually possible that the involvement of alcohol here would lead to a local business being responsible for the injuries sustained here.

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. A bar over-serving someone puts them and others in serious danger, so it's only right someone be held accountable when their negligent actions lead to people getting hurt. Again, that may not be at all what happened here, but it's not something that should simply go overlooked without some investigation.
