    This guy’s taking the lunch break to new heights.

    A grinning La Guardia Airport worker took a lunchtime joyride in a terminal stair car — even though such vehicles aren’t allowed on city streets.

    The driver, a regular at a pizza joint near the airport, was spotted cruising in the Southwest Airlines vehicle on 19th Avenue at Hazen Street in Queens at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

    But as much as the joker enjoyed his unusual wheels, he’d better leave them on the runway next time.
    “It is not legal to drive on a public street,” a DMV spokeswoman said.

    The vehicle displays a Port Authority license plate marked “A 3537,” which permits driving only on airport premises.

    It's already been debunked. The driver was taking it off airport to the maint facility with all the legal plates and permits according to what I read.

    Is that even right though? There's no way you can register a stair car with the DMV to get legal plates to drive it on a public road.

    And from the pictures it looks like that's exactly where he was and not on some service road inside the airport.
