    Well done B.P.S , a manager for the bars and restaurants division of the chamber of commerce spoke of a fall off in business due to folks deciding to drink at home, and a lack of alternative transportation could lead to lay offs.

      Drug addiction is really a terrible thing, serial repeat offenders stop going out because they no longer can openly abuse their drug of choice without any responsibility or consequence. They just can’t simply do without, so they must drink at home (where the DNDC reports our 8yr olds first start drinking). Blame for their problem is thrown at the feet of the taxi industry and now the police for finally doing their job by enforcing the law. The stats, although grossly inaccurate due to the majority going untested, still show alcohol and other drugs cause 75%+ of fatalities, comprehensive itemized stats would be higher, yet people feel their abuse of alcohol is a right. Liquor dealers complain of a drop in business after enjoying decades of zero responsibility, when was the last time they were held accountable and prosecuted for serving minors, serving people who subsequently died, not having a liquor license at all or “forgetting” to renew theirs? Time to re-invent and re-tool. “We had to hire security and apply for nightclub licenses…” what a burden, you ply folks with a dangerous drug known to lead to bad decision making and violence so you need bouncers. Out of 250+ arrests for DUI so far this year, the media has reported maybe 20 court cases. US DOJ is looking at including DUI offenders on the stop list soon so carry on.
