Norfolk County DA Calls on Bar Staff to Save Lives [VIDEO]

Michael Morrissey launched a county-wide 'Observe, Don't Over Serve' campaign on Monday.

Bar staff at restaurants across Norfolk County have a chance to save lives this holiday season by "observing" patrons and by making sure not to "over serve," Norfolk County District Attorney said.

Morrissey held three meetings with bar owners, local police chiefs and media on Monday in Dedham, Braintree and Foxborough. 

Bartenders and wait staff should be careful not to over serve customers, which can help cut down on vehicular deaths, Morrissey said during a press conference at at Legacy Place in Dedham.

Stoughton Police Chief , as well as police chiefs from Dedham and Needham, joined Morrissey at the press conference in Dedham.

According to the District Attorney's office, Norfolk County has seen 60 vehicular homicides to date in 2011, and Morrissey estimates that 50 are alcohol-related.
