We all know that drinking and driving any type of vehicle is dangerous and illegal. Just ask Cedric Benson how he feels about drinking and boating. Now comes news that a Whitehall, N.Y. man was charged with “driving while intoxicated after police pulled him over for swerving and driving on the sidewalk on a Cruizin’ Cooler. Read the entire story from the Glen Falls Post Star.
Leslie J. “Bomber” Marr was stopped riding his Cruzin Cooler with 14 beers still inside. Marr was headed away from the American Legion Post 83 on Memorial Day and refused a breath test when stopped by police. Even though the Cruizin’ Cooler maxes out at 14 MPH, it is considered a motor vehicle under New York state law.
I know there are a lot of tailgaters out there that already have a Cruizin’ Cooler but make sure to be careful when using it. Cruising the parking lot is one thing but make sure to not take it off site. There are a ton of cops in the parking lots at tailgate parties and acting like a jackass on one of these might give you the same fate as Mr. Marr.
