Commentary

Many people believe Texas dram law is a way out for drunk drivers to turn around and sue the bars that over-served them. This couldn't be further from the truth. It's cases such as these-- where innocent people are hurt or killed by reckless drunk drivers--that called for adoption of liquor liability law. Drunk drivers face criminal/civil punishment, while dram law ensures bars that enable them pay the consequences of their disregard.
