Drunk Drivers Can Hurt Bicyclists, Too

I bike thousands and thousands of miles on roads in Hillsborough County every year and I'm in no mood to be hit by a drunk driver. Unfortunately, there are a lot of drunk drivers out there on the roads. No other county in Florida has more drivers busted for drunk driving than Hillsborough. Which is why I attend meetings of the Tampa Alcohol Coalition, which is a group of law enforcement officials, college representatives and anti-drunk driving folks who work on getting drunks off of roads before they cause any damage.

At today's meeting, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee gave an award to the Dallas Bull bar/country-western hall for its work on trying to keep under-age drinkers from bellying up to the bar.
