Local Bars Say DWI Law is One Reason for Closings

Local Bars Say DWI Law is One Reason for Closings

Post by North Star 1 on December 28th 2009, 11:25 am

ALEXANDRIA, Minn - The .08 DWI law was cited by the owners Bug-A-Boo Bay and Trophy's bar as a major reason why they will be closing down Jan. 1.

Fat Daddy's owner Chad Meyer said that while the DWI does contribute to the hurting bar scene, it's only one of several factors hurting local bars.

"It's tough because people really don't know how much .08 is, so they just have a pop or stay home," said Meyer.

Meyer acknowledged that both the downturned economy as well as the smoking ban have also played a role in the loss of business.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Deputy Wade Lerfald blamed the economy, and said the DWI law should not carry the blame for lackluster business.

"The major reason is the economy. It has nothing to do with .08,' said Douglas County Deputy Wade Lerfald.

But Fat Daddy's customer Dale Carlson disagrees.

"Before the change I didn't think about it, but after it changed I had a lot of friends that got DWI's with like .09, so now it's like lets just stay home" said Carlson.

But Lerfald says his job is to make sure people get from "point A to point B safe" and that will not change.

I'm glad that the law on DWI's have changed there.. Ours has been .08 for many years. Hopefully this will also spare some people's lives and not be killed from drinking and driving or be killed by a drunk driver...

Well the thing that they are really talking about here peg is all the bars that are closing down because of the economy do to people not wanting to get a DWI, many people don't know how many drinks they can have so they have pop or just 1 drink and leave. I know for a fact they are losing money big time, i use to spend a 100.00 bucks every night while i was drinking now they want 2.90 a tap beer and to top it off you can't smoke either now.
