Here is yet another story concerning a person who should not be behind the wheel.

Police say a 56-year-old New York state woman was pulled over at the New York State Thruway toll entrance around 11 AM. What started as a routine traffic stop turned into much more, as troopers say they believed the woman was driving while intoxicated.
WKTV says the Utica woman was arrested and brought to the police station where her BAC was found to be .25%, which is over three times the state's legal limit.
