Enjoying good weather and good times at the vacant lot festival
slated for the coming weeks this may be
a good time for a few special reminders.
The new drunk driving laws are very
strict and public intoxication arrests in
this neighborhood have always netted
the city some extra revenue. The men in
blue in Montrose and judges in black
downtown aren't playing. It's wise
when going out for the evening to tuck
away a few bucks for a safe taxi ride
home. A D.W.I, or P.I. costs a lot more
than a couple of cocktails.
Also, always remember to play safe.
