This is why labels warn "Alcohol impairs your ability to drive or operate heavy machinery."

All these fails, in short, were caused by not knowing how to properly operate the machinery, not paying attention, or by simple stupidity. Please, for everyone's sake, take your time and know what you are doing before operating a grader, dozer, loader, plow or any other piece of heavy equipment. Things can turn quickly!
