A drunk driving arrest in California took a surprising turn, when it turned out that the suspect was driving a car that warned against drunk driving.

The driver had about the weaving of lanes of traffic on Interstate 80 around 4 a.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Oakland office.

The ad on the top of the vehicle, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, read: “I would probably for a ride home” (with “probably” crossed out). He also said, “Buzzed driving is drunk driving.”

“Ironic for someone to drive drunk with a plate of promote not to drink & drive,” highway patrol wrote.


The unnamed driver blood alcohol limit is over the limit, Officer Herman Baza told Bay City News. He said that the highway safety administration pays people for the display of the anti-drunk driving signs.

“It is a good message, but he is not necessarily the best role model,” Baza said. “He was weaving all over the place. We talked to him early enough that we prevented him from crashing.”
