Drinking & Driving goes to a new level

Lugging that cooler full of brewskis can put a dent in your weekend at the lake, or throw out your back.

Now, the Cruzin Cooler rolls to the rescue. It's a motorized, rideable ice chest that was on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Charles Pennington says his company's Cruzin Cooler can hold 27 cans and the optional trailer that hooks on can haul even more.

The motorized cooler costs about $500, and is powered by either a gas or electric motor.

So, how fast can you cruise on a cooler? Pennington says it will do 14 miles per hour which is -- and we quote -- "haulin' ass on an ice chest."
