This guy should not drive
Earlier this week, we warned you that very soon cops would be out in force, looking for wasted drivers on the road.

Well, that day has arrived.

Come Monday, you will see cops, cops, and more cops all around the Candlestick Park corridor watching out for anyone who is swerving or driving kinda funny, like the 23-year-old who led police on a drunken chase last night. The extra patrols will start at 7 p.m. and end at 3 a.m.

"The officers assigned to this patrol on motorcycle and police cruisers are skilled in detection of drivers we suspect may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Motorcycles in particular allow the officer an advantage to get closer to the vehicle to see if a driver is exhibiting signs of impairment," SFPD Sgt. William Murray said.

The Candlestick Park corridor was an obvious spot for extra patrols, considering the 49ers will be playing the Chicago Bears that night. And, we all know that too much alcohol, testosterone, and football can be a deadly combination.

Why do some people believe, the only way they can have a good time, is to be blasted out of their minds?  This may come as a revelation to some, but there are actual hipsters, who never drink, never puke their guts out, don't get DUI's, but can find their cars in the morning, minus the hangover.  Try it , you just might like it, than you won't have to worry about the Police.

And yet we continue building stadiums far from any form of decent mass transit.
