Re: LIRR Alcohol Ban: End of the Line for Midnight Drinkers

So long as those who do not take personal responsibility for their actions while inebriated are not held accountable for those actions there is no reason for any transit system to cater to their needs. Once they reach the point where they are incapable of caring for themselves they're simply a liability to whatever transit system they happen to be riding on. Maybe if we approached drinking with some maturity we wouldn't see this sort of thing, but unfortunately people erroneously assume that because they're not driving they are absolved of any and all consequences for their intoxication. It's too bad MAD is so autocentric, because they've really done a disservice to the threat the severely intoxicated pose to themselves and others when they enter any hazardous environment.
