Commentary on Sananda Muhammad Accident in Abilene

If blood tests confirm that the pickup's driver was impaired as police suspect, that may mean he'll face some legal consequences for his poor choices that night. That seems only right considering the serious dangers drunk drivers pose to themselves and the public, but I'd argue that everyone involved in that DWI--including any business that supplied the driver with too much alcohol--should also be held accountable. Texas dram shop law can help make that happen.

In a nutshell, dram shop law prohibits alcohol vendors like bars, clubs, and stores from selling or serving drinks to an obviously intoxicated person. It's illegal for them to do so and most play by the rules, but when a bad apple over-serves their customer and someone gets hurt that business can be held liable for the damage done. That can be a huge help to victims struggling to get back on their feet.

Not every DWI wreck starts with a reckless bar and over-service, but it's far more common than it should be. That's why it's important to track down the alcohol's source, and yet police rarely do so. That leaves many accident victims without a powerful tool to help them recover AND allows bad bars to keep endangering people, so independent investigators often get involved to pick up where police leave off.
