So the life of all passengers is in danger, threatened are the opposite cars in the danger zone fall even casual pedestrians.
As we know, if the police catch the driver of a motor vehicle while intoxicated will immediately follow do sanctions. But until that drunkenness was reached after use of alcohol in the case in nightclub away from home all celebrating. What should be said about their responsibilities bartenders and all employees serving a male company? They bring you responsible? What can withstand a shot from the law? All issues that probably everyone in the situation of the employees of the establishment or caught up in the situation the driver asks. We will try to give possible answers (without having claims that what ourselves as option is the right decision).
Brings you the bartender or waiter responsibility that a person has used alcohol, then get behind the wheel and followed the catastrophe?
It is desirable in such situations drinker of alcohol a person to be offered to give a breathalyzer sample. But Bulgarian legislation there is no case in which employees of the institution can be held liable for failing to have determined whether a person is overextended drinking and this would lead to an incident.
Experts recommend any bar, disco, restaurant, etc. It is equipped with a breathalyzer. There breathalyzers for clubs, which should be an integral part of the arsenal of an establishment where alcohol is available. The devices are stationary and belong to special professional breathalyzers.

Let’s get back on topic with the responsibility of bartenders in bars. In the US for example there is virtually bartenders and employees be liable in case of carry one another. Carry one another to say when the bartender sees that the client was drunk and still fulfill his contract for more alcohol. Oklahoma has a case in which two bartenders were fined and sanctioned for serving alcohol to visibly intoxicated person. The man visits a bar, drank bourbon 9 large, and they let him go alone and without him propose a breathalyzer to have a argument with which to call the authorities, in case of failure of the customer. So drunk man went home, but never arrived. Initially tripped and fell, then have him run over two cars in which man has died. Captured samples for alcohol by forensic pathologists, showing a 3 per mile, which US law is almost four times the legal limit.
Another bartender from Montana was even jailed because of that carry one another client. The employee of the restaurant gave more than 10 drinks per man. Again, he was offered a breathalyzer. Once you left the man crashed and died on the spot. The bartender was sentenced to four months in jail, community service and fines.
In Texas, undercover police arrested did bartender who carry one another alcohol to visibly sober client and offered breathalyzer. It turns out that US authorities invest in educational programs for bar owners and their staff. Teach them this, what is their legal responsibility and not produce excessive amounts of alcohol to drunken customers. So hope to reduce the number of accidents and related crimes.
