City of Seattle wants bars to stay open later

Posted by Unknown | Mar 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

The city of Seattle is interested in having bars stay open past their 2 a.m. closing time. They have sought the approval of the Washington State Liquor Board.

At this time, the request has neither been approved or denied, but there is a great deal of opposition to the proposal. Critics argue that later serving times will lead to increased drunk driving arrests and fatal accidents. More people will be driving after consuming alcohol, and they will be doing so at a later time of the morning, during early commuter traffic.

If this proposition is approved, a longer time to consume alcohol could lead to more intoxicated individuals operating motor vehicles. The extension could be hazardous to drivers on Seattle roadways.

Please contact the Seattle DUI defense lawyers of the Cowan, Kirk & Gaston Law Firm by calling 866-822-1230 if you or someone you know has been charged with driving under the influence in the city of Seattle.
