Idaho Zamboni Drivers Fired After Trip To Fast-Food Drive-Thru

Boise, Idaho (AP) -- A slow run for some fast food in Boise, Idaho, has cost two city workers their jobs.

They were spotted on their Zamboni ice rink machines in a Burger King drive-through earlier this month.

The Zambonis are chunky vehicles with rubber tires that hit a top speed of five miles-an-hour.

The drivers had to get through at least one traffic light to make the midnight "run," covering a mile and a-half, round-trip.

Neither the $75,000 Zambonis nor their $10,000 blades appeared damaged.

A city official says the two temporary city workers didn't seem to understand "the seriousness" of what they did.
