We all know the dangers of drunken driving and we all know the lawmakers want more punishment for those convicted. Well and good but the lawmakers fail to even draft or consider a Dram Shop law the has been successful in many states. That is because the liquor lobby will do everything to block it. Dram shop laws make the tavern keepers and servers of alcohol legally liable for the damages caused by over serving resulting in accidents, death and injuries.
Several states who have Dram Shop Laws have placed the blame where is starts.....at the tavern where too much alcohol is sold.
Ask the candidates for the legislature, Governor and Attorney General what they know about Dram Shop Law and whether they support such a law in Wisconsin.
