Man Busted for Drunk Driving...a Motorized Cooler
Police pulled over an inebriated man driving a motorized cooler over Memorial Day. Apparently he was swerving and driving in an unsafe manner - he couldn't have been going too fast, but the folks at Autoblog had a good point about why this was an extraordinarily dumb idea.
Under New York state law, driving any motorized vehicle must be done sans alcohol, and that means anything from cars and boats to motorized coolers falls under the letter of the law. While some would argue that the electric cooler doesn't pose a real threat to pedestrians or other motorists, we'd disagree. This idiot could have caused other drivers to swerve to miss him, and strike others in the process.
Note to self: Make sure to hit the breathalyzer at home before driving off on our own Cruzin Cooler
