It's not always possible for servers that work in bars and restaurants to realize how much someone has had to drink. And problem drinkers tend to roam from bar to bar on any given night -- who are you going to make responsible? The owner of the fifth place that person wanders into that night? In the final analysis, people should be responsible for their own behavior.
