Finger Lakes, NY – The Finger Lake’s region is one of the best parts of New York. Beautiful scenery, clean water, and some of the best wine in the world. But after many years of a lax approach to supervising the roads near the wine trails, police are starting to crack down on drunk driving in the area.
“We just never thought about it I guess,” said Officer Leroy Grapesmithy. “We just figured everyone was drinking responsibly. All the commercials tell you too.”
As it turns out, no one actually drinks responsibly in wine country. The DWI Checkpoint set up near the popular Hazlitt winery averaged about 10 arrests an hour. Even after people drove past it on the way in, they would get blackout on Red Cat, and drive back into it.
