But I Really AM Clean and Sober!

but i really am clean and sober

Just before 8 A.M. yesterday a Concord, CA police officer responding to an emergency call was driving on the 3600 block Willow Pass road with lights flashing and siren blaring. A box truck yielded to the right. In doing so, the truck driver "clipped the bottom of a wooden PG&E power pole" at the intersection of Ashdale and Willow Pass roads, shearing it off near ground level. The pole, replete with streetlight and attached electrical cables fell across the top of the truck. The wires ended-up draped across both lanes of the roadway. The Contra Costa Times reports that a motorcyclist then drove into the low-hanging wires, which knocked him clean off his bike. Thankfully, he wasn't electrocuted on the spot (or, as far as we know, later). Oh, and the name of the company that's boldly printed in large black letters on the side of the pole-clipping white box truck? "Clean & Sober Hauling" of course!

    I stand corrected - that does sound like an organization with an admirable mission. Is Clean and Sober a local company or statewide/nationwide?

    dastanley: Is Clean and Sober a local company or statewide/nationwide? According to their " Contact Us" page, they operate in the general bay area. :-)

    Rumor has it that Clean & Sober specializes in hauling plutonium, nerve gas and toxic waste.
