Long Island Wine Council Restricting Limos Coming To Vineyards

Posted on October 19, 2016

NORTH FORK, N.Y. — Unsettling cellphone video has surfaced of a limousine driver trying to make an ill-advised and dangerous U-turn in wine country, just feet from the site of a fatal limo crash 15 months ago.

The video shows a mega-stretch limo stuck on a Cutchogue winery road, trying to negotiate a three-point turn. It called into question the driver and passengers’ behavior.
