C'mon, it's Alaska and it's winter...who isn't drunk up there?

Wasn't there some movie about alcoholism where after hitting bottom the guy gets a job working at the docks with a forklift, and nearly kills or injures some coworkers operating it drunk?

Sorry if you are on private property then you should be able to drive around naked doing Jager shots every time you want to power slide into small trees.

Here's a youtube video about a drunken Russian forklift driver:

Also an entry on this page about a drunken forklift ride:

Pretty far down the page...

Not sure why I bothered posting these... seems more common than all that though.

I thought it was a job requirement to be drunk or hung over when driving a fork lift.

Not if you put the lives of other people at risk. If you decided to drive around the parking lot of Costco (private property) naked & doing Jager shots, are you saying you shouldn't be arrested?
Your rights stop where the next persons' rights begin; no matter whose property you're on.

It depends. If you own Costco and you made sure the lot is clear, why not?

Actually if the police can prove you have access to public roads (IE you have a driveway that connects to a public roadway) you can get a dui driving around naked and doing Jager shots on your own private property under that scary notion of intent. Furthermore some states specify that DUI's can be apprehended on private property.

/Thank MADD for being "anti driving around naked and doing Jager shots"

Yes we all can point out the obvious exceptions to what I said. However I stand by my disagreement to the blanket statement that was made about what you can not do on private property. Barring those exceptions, if I want to mow my lawn while drinking a cold one, or cruise around the back 40 on the 4 wheeler while a 5th of Jack keeps me warm, then I should. Lets call it private property without the expectation of public access, unlike Costco

I thought all forklift drivers were at least hung over.

Au contraire, subby, if there's any place on the Webbernets that would collect drunk forklift operator stories, it would be Fark.

Um, I think the PP was referring to the fact that, up here, lots of folks have a LOT of land and multiple types of motorized machines to drive around on....snowmachines, 4 wheelers, 3 wheelers, hell, 6 wheelers and privately owned dump trucks, motorcycles, dirt bikes, you name it.

I live on the rural outskirts of Fbks. The area where this happened is not exactly the nicest part of town. Honestly, this story doesn't surprise me at all.
