Getting pulled over sucks. Could possibly lead to jail! So it’s reasonable to expect that motorists everywhere are interested in figuring out how to avoid traffic violations, right? Instamotor, which pegs itself as a helpful guide for buying cars, thinks so. The website released a study this week that, it says, shows…
Utah governor Gary Herbert signed some of the strictest drunken driving limits in the nation into law yesterday, prompting protests from those working in the tourism and restaurant industries. The legal blood alcohol limit there is now .05 percent, as opposed to .08 percent in most places.
I’m fairly certain this isn’t actually Deadpool because the actual Deadpool wouldn’t get drunk, get the drunchies for chimichangas, drive his car onto a Taco Bell lawn and then pass out in the driver’s seat. Deadpool would have called his friend the cab driver.
It’s really not to surprising to find out that the driver who rear-ended a motorcycle and then drove all the way home with that motorcycle jammed into his Jeep’s bumper was charged with a DUI. Not realizing or even caring that you’re shoving a whole V-twin motorcycle in front of your car is really the sort of thing…
Nearly 65 percent of U.S. adults drink at least a couple cups of coffee per day on average, and a sizable portion of that demographic almost certainly throws back a couple caffeinated brews while driving. In California, one man is finding out the cost of the stimulant may be more than a few bucks.
Despite what movies like Zootopia show, police officers are people. Well, except for those police dogs. They’re canines. Human officers are, of course, human, and like other humans, they make mistakes and are not above the law. All of these facts became painfully clear as one Michigan deputy was forced to pull over a…
Last month Florida attorney David J. Maloney, locally famous for an aggressive anti-DUI attitude, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. Now the state attorney’s office has decided to dismiss the case because they couldn’t find enough evidence that Maloney was actually impaired after all.
Troy Smith, the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner and former communications major at Ohio State, was arrested overnight Sunday on suspicion of being intoxicated behind the wheel and on certainty of being a consummate fuckup during a traffic stop.
One Florida woman must have really, really wanted some waffles.
Fans at Daytona International Speedway’s Bike Week had a rude awakening this weekend when a black Toyota pickup ran into four people and six motor homes in the infield campground. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the accused driver admitted to drinking before getting behind the wheel.
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.
On Saturday afternoon, Florida Highway Patrol got reports of a Cadillac driving recklessly down a road known as Alligator Alley. When a FHP trooper pulled the car over, according to the Naples Daily News, what he found was raw, unadulterated, nuclear-grade pure Floridium: a white-hot ball of the very soul of Florida,…
There’s some things that are wonderful independently, but potentially disastrous when combined. Marshmallow fluff and long, luxurious hair, for example. A full-grown panther and a basket of puppies. And, it seems, driving and fellatio, which appears to have caused the death of a Florida cyclist.
His name, naturally, is Ronny Hicks.
If you know you’re not in a condition to drive, it’s best to, you know, stop driving. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should just stop in the middle of a road and let your Hyundai just sort of roam free like this woman did. That’s actually probably worse than driving impaired a few seconds longer to get somewhere…
Driving under the influence isn’t a good idea on any stretch of road, but if you’re heading off to drive the I-90 in Montana after a few shots, better make sure your will is up to date.
A report says Pennsylvania State Troopers (literally) lassoed a guy who was cruising down the street on his Cub Cadet lawn tractor with a suspended driver’s license and “three times” the legal limit of booze in his blood. So in case anybody was wondering, looks like “it’s just a mower!” is not a viable defense.
Last week somebody called the cops on this 1994 Plymouth Voyager low-budget ice cream van for swerving into oncoming traffic and slamming curbs. Cops rolled up and arrested the allegedly intoxicated driver while he was selling ice cream to kids.
A Florida jury has issued a record judgement for $563 million dollars against a car dealership after it loaned a car to a drunk driver who hit and killed a man on a scooter.
Now, before we all jump to very reasonable and probable conclusions about intoxication, please keep in mind this woman was driving a Sebring, and passing out cold is just part of the driving experience. That said, it's lucky she didn't get killed/kill anyone, and that CHP officer handled this remarkably well.
