Unfortunately, and perhaps unbelievably, sharing the snowmobiling trails with people who are drunk and driving is a legitimate cause for concern while enjoying the winter weather. A recent report by an Erie, PA area news website just covered an incident relating a drunken snowmobiling accident.
According to the report, a New York man was drunkenly operating a snowmobile and crashed into a county sheriff's car last weekend in Marysville, PA. The 28-year-old driver was charged with several offenses, including snowmobiling white intoxicated, reckless operation, and failing to stop before cross a highway. The snowmobile nearly hit an oncoming car while attempting to enter the highway without stopping or yielding to traffic.
