Someone from the cabin had seen the three being stopped by the police and came running back to report, "Guys, better not drink and drive. Looks like the police are checking on drunk drivers."

One had to pay a heavy price for drunk driving in the US. Police were very strict about pulling over cars with drunk drivers. They would make you take a test if you were caught, and would bring you to the police station under immediate arrest. People who drank and drive also needed to pay for other expenses such as the vehicle tow fee, vehicle storage fee, and fine.
