A brief, shining moment of reason in the War on Drunk Driving:
Zamboni Operator Can't be Charged with
Drunk Driving, Judge Rules
Newark, NJ. April 3 (AP) — It's not drunken driving in New Jersey if it involves a Zamboni.
A judge ruled the four-ton ice rink-grooming machines arenâ€™t motor vehicles because they aren't useable on highways and canâ€™t carry passengers.
Zamboni operator John Peragallo had been charged with drunken driving in 2005 after a fellow employee at the Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown told police the machine was speeding and nearly crashed into the boards…
Morris County Assistant Prosecutor Joseph Dâ€™Onofrio said no decision had been made on whether to appeal.
Where was this common sense when they convicted folks for DUI on wheelchairs, lawnmowers, horses — and even a foot-high toy bike? (See "Stretching the Language of DUI Laws".)
