  • We love children. Everybody loves children and children don't have a voice' said general manager Melisa Gravelle

While a restaurant stepping in to help curb drunk driving might seem unconventional, the Peddler's one-drink-for-driving-parents policy reinforces strategies that many establishments already use-bartenders are already allowed to cut off anyone they think has had too much to drink, and many bars post signs for cab companies in their bathrooms.

Melisa Gravelle, general manager at Peddlers Bar & Bistro in Clifton, says she holds those seven words - created to keep families safe on the road - close to her heart, according to WTEN.

That's one of the reasons Gravelle says the restaurant limits how much alcohol those dining with children can drink.

Peddlers Bar and Bistro located in Clifton Park said they limit patrons that are traveling with children in their cars to one drink per customer, WKBN reported.

"I could never live with myself knowing that I killed somebody driving", the bar's manager, Melisa Gravelle, said. "I could never do that, and it's a choice you can avoid".

Customers say they don't mind the policy, because it comes from a place a good intentions. "When you think about the law, when you think about the responsibility that a parent has to protect their children", said customer Barb Buckley. Some waitresses taking the brunt of those who disagree.

"They do get berated at the tables and some come back very upset but the managers go to the table and they explain", said Gravelle.

"Why take the chance? That way you keep those people off the road", Greg Culver, of Greenwich, said. "Definitely doesn't make any sense".

She added: 'I'm a former educator and I think it's a great policy. Any guardian accompanying a child will be subject to the rule but patrons dining without kids are able to imbibe as they wish. It was implemented in 2010 and management doesn't plan on changing it anytime soon.
