NY restaurant limits parents dining with children to 1 alcoholic drink

Clifton Park, NY (WHDH) — A New York restaurant is aiming to fight drunk driving, especially when children are involved.

The restaurant has a policy that anyone who has kids with them is only allowed to order one alcoholic beverage.

Bartenders say it is because kids don’t get a voice in the situation.

“I could never live with myself knowing that I killed somebody driving,” said general manager, Melisa Gravele. “I could never do that and it’s a choice that you can avoid.”

The restaurant says if you do not abide by the policy then you will be asked to leave.

The state says the policy is legal.
