The National Transportation Safety Board just released its Most Wanted list for 2016. In hopes to end the boozing and the cruising once and for all, the agency wants states to drop their drunk driving blood alcohol content limit from .08 to .05 or lower.
The number of deaths linked to drunk passengers who wander off the platform and onto the tracks has steadily increased over the years. But a new study of these falls shows that many of them occur in the same way—and that there might be a few simple ways to prevent some of them.
New Year’s Eve might be the best party night of the year, but it can also be the most stressful, from losing your phone to the far more perilous drive home. Here are a few things you can do now to stay safe and sane this New Year’s.
Have you enjoyed the return of the striking Martini livery to the Williams Formula One team this season? Of course you have, because you have eyes. But if the Paris-based European Alcohol Policy Alliance has their way, alcohol sponsorships in F1 would become a thing of the past.
Qantas flight 24 from Bangkok to Sydney was diverted to Cairns on Sunday morning, after a drunk passenger repeatedly tried to steal scotch from the service galleys. After being restrained, he broke through the plastic zip-tie handcuffs. And then another pair. And then two more pairs.
One of the interesting things about travel by air is that it's perfectly acceptable to drink alcohol at any time of day. If you have an adult beverage on a flight, what's your drink of choice?
You know what the Olympic Marathon event is missing? Cars. Cars would really add that extra oomph to the event. This glaring omission hasn't always been the case, though: in 1904, a runner named Fred Lorz used one to ride about 11 miles of the marathon.
Like thousands of New Yorkers, Dr. Anthony Marx, the 52-year-old president of the New York Public Library, was massively inconvenienced on Sunday by marathon road closures. No problemo! He just threw his Audi A4 (registered to the library) into reverse, floored it — and slammed it into a garbage truck on East 138th St.
High-level bungling and a lack of proper funding has left the nation's capital without a functioning breath test program, and police officers have told The Washington Post that they're reluctant to arrest people on suspicion of driving drunk because they're given crappy equipment. With only unreliable breath test…
We get a lot of alcohol-based bribes at the 24 Hours of LeMons, but the folks here in the South take that tradition to a level we don't see in, say, New England or Texas.
Thai police have erected fake crash sites, like the one above, as a drunk driving deterrent. They're intended to frighten locals out of drinking and driving. Hmm, works for us.
Anytime I think of NASCAR, I think of rabid alcoholism—and can you blame me? The latest NASCAR gadget is this miniature bar hidden in a model NASCAR car. Sure, It may look like a traditional unbranded NASCAR-style vehicle at first, but lift up the body and you're in for one hell of a surprise.
Be prepared to confuse the hell out of guests because it's time to finally get an indoor wood-panel van, or at least a quarter of one. This Wood Panel Bar is a bar/liquor cabinet for lovers of the wood paneling. The liquor cabinet includes a classy drawer, hanging racks for various types of classes and an extending…
I'm still having a bit of a hard time wrapping my brain around this concept. The G400 is a GPS navigation unit from NDrive that includes a breathalyzer. I guess it is a good way to judge whether or not you should be driving, but my usual rule of thumb is that if I've had enough drinks to warrant the use of a…
Super Tuesday, schmuper Tuesday. It's Fat Tuesday, period. Go cast your ballot early and get ready to celebrate the start of Mardi Gras with tons and tons of drinking. If you are still stuck at the office, there is one way to get a head start on the celebration, and it is with this gas can flask. Fill her up with your…
If you're going to build a V8-powered margarita blender that can swallow six bags of ice at a gulp, which engine do you use? Do we even have to ask? This one gets bonus points for using the torque-monster 400 instead of the dime-a-dozen 350.
According to this article out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a new plant is Louisana that will make 1.4 million gallons of ethanol from cellulosic sources (e.g., wood chips, corn cobs, etc.) will begin production next year. But that won't be enough, states the article, and it never will be if the feds…
Pain, pain on the Baltic. How to drown such existential ache out? With distilled spirits of grain or potate, of course. Then, when numbed to one's desired level of comfort, it's time to head home and pass out on a soft, warm bed of Khruschev-era surplus straw mattress in a tepid-water flat. But how to cross the…
