Driving with a Traffic Light

Your Honor: I plead not guilty. I did not see a light; and besides ~ there is no light on that corner. I checked the next morning........
Now here's a hard core drinker and one tough Dodge truck. The driver hit the left turn light and sheared off the light post at the base, and then kept driving on about 2 miles to Squires Four Pub, where he stopped for more beer!! How impaired do you have to be to NOT notice that you are carrying a stop light? ( I Wonder if the light was green? ) The truck was towed about 2.5 miles to the Vernon towing yard, with the light still pinched between the two tow hooks and the bumper bent around it It took several good hard pulls with a backhoe to get the pole free. Now that's what you call drunk driving.
