A police officer patrolling early one Saturday morning was shocked when he spotted a strange sight. The officer reported that he was traveling west on Route 46 when he saw a black sedan with a traffic sign lodged in its sunroof. The driver appeared to be disoriented and intoxicated when she pulled into a parking lot. In New Jersey and every other state, drunk driving can lead to serious consequences.
The driver, a 52-year-old woman from Hawthorne, allegedly failed police-administered field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests. The woman was unaware of the sign protruding from her sunroof even though there was glass covering the interior and top of her car. The steel sign was just a few inches away from the driver's seat, and the results could have been devastating.
