Is this right or wrong?
A New York restaurant has committed to limiting parents’ alcohol intake when they dine with their children and plan to drive home.
The general manager at Peddlers Bar & Bistro in Clifton Park, New York, said she fears for the safety of drunken adult drivers and the children who accompany those drivers, and she hopes to prevent unnecessary accidents.
“I could never live with myself knowing that I killed somebody driving. I could never do that. “We love children. Everybody loves children, and children don’t have a voice … It’s just something that we feel in our hearts is something that we can do in order to help.”
Bartender Cheryl Faas said restaurant employees explain the policy to adults upfront.
“(Servers) do get berated at the tables and some come back very upset, but the managers go to the table and they explain we’re not picking on parents, it’s just something that we feel in our hearts is something that we can do in order to help.
Customers who don’t adhere to the restaurant’s rule are directed to leave the establishment.
