We’ve all heard of a DWI, but what about a MWI? One West Perth, Ontario, Canada, man has now.
He was operating a mower about 4 p.m. down a public road when he was stopped by an officer.
He had been drinking and showed obvious signs of impairment, according to The Beacon Herald. The 64-year-old man was arrested after failing two breath tests.
It might not be a car, but it’s still a moving vehicle that could cause damage to the operator and those around him.
After reading about this incident, it made me want to see if there were others who would pull the same dangerous stunt. And what do you know: There are plenty of others who also don’t think before they mow. Heck, there’s even a T-shirt for it.
One Maine man was pulled over for driving a mower while drunk a few years back. His reasoning? His license had been revoked, so he decided to use the mower as a car. Hmm… wonder why he lost his license?
Sometimes, I’m actually surprised at people’s stupidity, and this is one of those times.
