That’s the only conclusion I can come to, anyway. Why else would they have a proposed rule to make alcohol retailers put up a sign stating that:
- Drinking and driving is dangerous
- Drinking alcohol when pregnant is dangerous
- Drinking and driving is illegal in the District
The rules are in comment period now, so if you really have a problem with this you can send your observations to the board in the next thirty days. I imagine nobody’s going to complain – aside from the pointless cost of making these signs and retailers having a little less wall space for neon Corona signs, this isn’t the kind of government action that whips people into a froth.
I’m considering sending in an suggestion that they add “Fire hot, water wet.”
