MONTANA: A Montana Department of Transportation public safety video that features a horse picking up a rider at a bar is intended as a metaphor to encourage drinkers to get a ride home.

Montana law carefully defines a vehicle, and excludes those running under animal power.

The popular 30-second video titled Sober Friend shows a savvy horse carefully obeying traffic laws on a nighttime journey through town before stopping in front of a bar to pick up a rider.

One player, Jack Russo, told WSVN-TV the pilot made a perfect landing near the seventh hole as he was about to putt for par on the eighth.

" ... the plane just flew right over my head, it must have been 10 feet, and totally flustered me," said Russo. "I missed the putt."

Pilot Annette Simon, 35, who landed her aircraft on the Greynolds Park Golf Course in North Miami Beach after she heard an unusual noise and experienced engine roughness, said she checked to make sure no one was on the green as she landed.
