Public Safety or Protectionism?

The Chicago Tribune (registration required) brings brief word today of the nearby city of Chicago Heights. The city banned alcohol sales from locations where gasoline is sold. The city claimed that it is for safety reasons. The city also noted that there have been no problems that have arisen so far from having both types of sales at one location. And the kicker: "One [gas] station, however, at 201 E. Lincoln Highway, which has been selling alcohol, will be allowed to continue to do so."
