What is the duty of care owed to a vendor who serves alcohol to patrons who may be expected to use the roads?

Alberta, Canada

The following excerpt is from Calliou Estate v. Calliou Estate, 2002 ABQB 68 (CanLII):

The duty of care must arise from a special relationship of proximity, such as where commercial vendors of alcohol serve alcohol to patrons who may be expected to use the roads: Stewart v. Pettie at paras 24 to 33. This duty is also owed to third parties that are using the highways.
