Free Coffee, Tea on Thruway for "Drowsy" Drivers New Year's Eve
We kid, of course. The press release from the Thruway Authority actually discourages you from driving drunk, and adds that the State Police "maintains a zero-tolerance stand on intoxicated driving violations and our Troopers will be out in force this holiday weekend." They just want to encourage you to "take frequent safety breaks while traveling to avoid drowsy driving." Everyone knows coffee won't keep you awake behind the wheel.
Just don't go into the rest stops stinko -- or even just slurring your words like Max Baucus -- because we suspect this is some sort of trap.
And if you do get the free coffee, don't drink it behind the wheel.
