Downtown Bar Report — For March

The Downtown Bar Report for the month of March has several interesting entries including one from 10:58 p.m. Saturday, March 5, in which a Baja Bargarita patron became disoriented while driving near the Coeur d'Alene Resort: "Officers responded to a call of a possible DUI and vehicle stuck in a snow berm in front of the
CDA Resort. Notably, the vehicle was primarily on the sidewalk. Apparently the driver thought the snow berm was a roadway divider and proceeded to drive upon the sidewalk. When he realized he wasn’t driving on the roadway, he attempted to cross “over” the berm and became stuck. The driver, a 24 year old male, was arrested for DUI (BAC = .125). He told officers he had a few drinks at the Baja Bargarita earlier in the evening." You can read the full report here.

Question: Have you ever thought a snow berm was a road way divider?
