After reading "LIRR booze ban" [News, April 24], I can't help but wonder why alcohol should even be allowed on the trains. Who will be sued or harmed if a booze-filled commuter exits the train at his or her station, then hits the road in his or her car? This doesn't require rocket science to predict tragedy on the roadways.
Who will be responsible if commuters are "overserved"? Is the Long Island Rail Road considered to be the "host," and if so, in the event of an accident on the roadway -- once the inebriated commuter is on his merry way home -- can the LIRR be held responsible? Cheers!

To expose these public workers to drunken nonsense is an outrage.
