Yup since if your driving a motor vehicle on the road you loose your license same thing in his yard, You can't even sit in the driver seat of your own car while drinking. The Laws around here are stupid

Sorry, what the heck? That's so most ridiculous thing i've ever heard...

people tend to be in yards and, although it seems unlikely that you couldn't get out of the way of a speeding lawnmower, it could happen.
I don't think the laws are dumb. They do take the fun out of things though. My neighbor rented a mini excavator which would have been a riot to operate after a few beers, otherwise it's just work.

In Pennsylvania people have gotten DUIs on:

Lawnmowers
Tractors
ATVs
Golf Carts
Bicycles
Skateboards
Motorized Barstools
Shopping Carts  (WTF?)
Horse Drawn (Amish) Buggies
Sleeping it off in their car while parked in front of the bar

The nice thing is in this state as long as you are not on the road or on public property you can drink all you want...

I find it humorous that New Years Eve '08 there was a check point setp up in the parking lot of a local strip mall..  They directed all the traffic from the street though this parking lot.. Not saying this was a bad thing, but bad publicity for the PSP when the bank in the strip mall  (no more than 150 feet from the troopers) was not only robbed, but the robbers GOT AWAY!

I can understand the laws (lost some good friends to a drunk driver) but GEEZ don;t they have better things to do?  Guess there's more money to be made off DUIs and speeders than catching crooks, rapists, and murders..   Why else would there be speed traps every 10 miles the day after the governor annouced a spending freeze..

OKay I'm done ranting now.. Time for another beer...

Now I know someone has been hitting the sauce!!

Beer and an excavator, PERFECT!!!  WHat better way to crush the cans when you're done!

Paddeling a canoe...  LOL What tipped off the law??? The guy paddeling in circles for 4 hours?

     PA stopped enforcing the beer and boating thing years ago I think.. They probably lost too much money from not selling fishing and boat licenses.....   No point in going out on the boat fishing if you can;t drink!

Really?  I know that it is illegal in Ontario to drink in any boat while it's moving unless that boat has a liquor licence.  I didn't think you could get a DUI for paddling a canoe or riding a bicycle while drunk though.
