The Tulsa World is usually the only place you can read a story about A.B.L.E. that doesnt appear to have been written by A.B.L.E.

Smoot needs to practice his camera face in front of the mirror. It's like they always catch him making the weirdest faces possible.

Things we will never have under A.B.L.E.:

Entertainment district drinking
The Huffington Post took a look at public drinking laws and found that there are 20 cities that either have no public drinking ban on the books or have designated "Entertainment Districts" where you can drink in public.




Towns that allow public drinking in most or all areas:
Hood River, Ore.
Sonoma, Calif.
Las Vegas
Fredericksberg, Texas
Fort Worth, Texas
Arlington, Texas
Indianapolis
New Orleans
Gulfport, Miss.
Erie, Pa.
Savannah, Ga.

Towns that allow public drinking in special Entertainment Districts:
Lincoln, Neb.
Kansas City, Mo.
Louisville, Ky.
Memphis, Tenn.
Huntsville, Ala.
Birmingham, Ala.
Montgomery, Ala.
Mobile, Ala.

Now, commit them to memory.

Not included on that list: towns where the police don't care if you walk down the street with a beer open, even on a Tuesday afternoon.

Other things effed by ABLE:
Growler fills of Marshall/Prairie.
Carry-out 12 packs from the bar to take home at closing time.
Carry-out beers for the walk home.
Sundays in general.

Different from Public Drunk (which apparently now includes passengers being driven by designated drivers) ?

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police officers made 10 arrests at a weekend drunken driving checkpoint in midtown.
The after-holiday checkpoint was set up last Saturday at 10 p.m. and ran until 3 a.m. as part of the state's "More Cops. More Stops." alcohol enforcement campaign.

Police say the checkpoint resulted in 95 vehicle stops, 71 citations issued and 10 arrests made.
The arrests were on complaints of driving under the influence, drug possession, misdemeanor warrants and public intoxication.


Deputies from the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and ABLE Commission officers were assisting at the roadblock.

While I think we are all in agreement that we hate the low point beer laws in Oklahoma, that is the only thing allowing beer sales at events like Mayfest (and probably the fair).

Or maybe Walking While intoxicated. Make it similar to driving.

Either way, if it would be a money maker, we would already have it on the books.

Quote
An Oklahoma DWI, or driving while intoxicated, is generally seen as a lesser charge than a DUI. A driver can be charged with DWI if his or her blood alcohol content is lower than the legal limit of .08 but higher than .05. However, there is no set BAC standard, and there is no scientific or objective measurement involved with what leads to a charge of DWI in Oklahoma. Basically, if a driver is below the legal alcohol limit but is still impaired beyond the ability to drive a vehicle, that person could be arrested for DWI in Oklahoma, which is classified as a misdemeanor.

In contrast to DWI in Oklahoma, a DUI can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on several factors including the driver's criminal record and whether or not anyone was harmed as a result of the alleged DUI. In addition, a DUI can only be charged if the driver had a BAC of above the legal limit in Oklahoma of .08. Generally, a DUI charge is the result of a more objective investigation, although a roadside sobriety test can also be used to give rise to an arrest. DUI penalties are also generally more severe than the penalties associated with Oklahoma DWI, but once again several factors determine the potential penalties.
