If you owned a muffler shop and you can see that a man that has returned for his car is now very obviously drunk, do you give him the keys back to his car?

When I read this, I imagined walking in to pick up my car, to hurry up and get back to work, sober, but not appearing so under the scrutinizing eyes of my mechanic. He tells you no way, where do you go from there?

Hell no. Personally, I don't care but if that drunk gets into an accident his scumbag lawyer will come after me. Drunks can sue bartenders now for getting them drunk. It's a fucked up world out there.

So unnecessary if you can prevent a crime then do that instead.

Good Q. I'll steal mickey's response. Maybe warn the customer of fictional police speed traps. Make some mention that the area has been targeted lately.

Also, if they do not reek of alcohol, possibly inquire if they are diabetic. Sounds like it.

Or course not I'd drive him home and when he was sober I'd let him have his car back.

Thank you I've done something like this before with one of my friends.
