Guy Takes Lawnmower to Store to Get Smokes & Gets DUI

A drunk Canadian dude was recently charged with impaired operation of a  motor vehicle after he was found driving a lawn mower down a road  leading to the Trans-Canada Highway. CBC News reports that the  41-year-old man informed the Mounties he was heading to a gas station to  buy cigarettes and figured it was "responsible" to ride his lawn mower  instead of a car. He also had a 39-year-old female passenger. While lawn  mowers are not specifically mentioned in Manitoba's Highway Traffic  Act, they are not allowed on streets or highways. The man is schedule to  appear in Winnipeg court on August 23.
