Today's lesson: golf carts--also a bad choice. As reported in this Tampa Bay Online article, a young man was recently charged with operating a golf cart on U.S. 19 while intoxicated:
Early Thursday, a New Port Richey Police officer pulled over a golf cart cruising in the right lane of U.S. 19 heading south. Steven Lee Proctor had a dazed expression, slurred speech, watery bloodshot eyes and reeked of alcohol, the officer said in his report. At first the 18-year-old denied drinking any alcohol or using any controlled substances. But after performing poorly on field sobriety tests and being read his legal rights, Proctor admitted to the officer he had "a few beers" before driving the golf cart on the highway, the report said.Our advice? If you've had a few drinks, take a cab or get where you're going the old fashioned way: walk. You'll retain your dignity and stay safe.
