News From the Front…

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Well, I’ve posted on drunk driving arrests involving horses, lawn mowers, wheelchairs, walking a bicycle – even playing with a foot-high toy bike, so maybe this will come as no surprise….


Zamboni Driver Charged with Drunk Driving

Kingsville, Ont.  Nov 1  -  A 34-year-old woman from Kingsville, Ont., has been charged with impaired driving — on a Zamboni.

Provincial police say an off-duty officer spotted the woman driving erratically on the ice resurfacer at Kingsville Arena on Thursday night.  The driver was missing major spots on the ice and bumping into the boards. 

 
Maybe it’s a trend.  See my post two years ago, DUI on Ice, where a New Jersey judge threw out a Zamboni case, ruling that "four-ton ice rink-grooming machines aren’t motor vehicles because they aren’t useable on highways and can’t carry passengers".  Don’t you just hate it when some common sense judge takes all the fun out of MADD’s hysteria?
