Do you want to see a drunk put his car into a servo at high speed? Of course you do

By johnboy - 16 March 2013 25

During the week we were excited by the news of a drink driver putting his car into the Belconnen Coles Express petrol station.

Now ACT Policing have released the rather exciting video.

The staff waving their arms in the air around 0:28 is a particular highlight.

What was the guy in the other car doing? He could have seen it coming jumped out of his car, into the other car and apply the brake before it slammed into the shop.

Probably a public servant…

“So in summing up, I say to those present in mitigation of the events demonstrated on the video, that my client, despite having consumed a bathtub full of Bundy, a pound of cocaine, 157 tabs of E, and having already been being banned from driving for the previous twenty years, driving a stolen car, and putting the lives of the general public at great risk, would like it known that since his arrest he has found out that he has mental health issues, that daddy didn’t hug him enough, that he had a far worse upbringing than any of you lot, that his pension payment has been delayed, and that he didn’t mean to beat up his girlfriend prior to this event. His best mate Mully died in tragic circumstances, and he is still grieving for him. He is genuinely sorry and won’t do it again, and this time he really means that not like the other 79 times he’s said it in this court…”

Justice Refshauge; “Two months weekend detention, suspended for two years.”

My god! He was moving!! So lucky that other car wasn’t hit in the driver door – and no one was standing in the shop. What a twat.Looks like they need to put those bollards across the whole front of the store for the next DUI driver visiting. And yes, how unusual for it to be a disqualified driver with a history of drink driving…..

The incident itself or Refshauge’s punishment?

Did you see the person in the very end of the video inside the store? The arm waving outside the door? That was very close, as was the bowser being hit. Could have been much, much worse.

Surely he will claim that the accelerator pedal got stuck under the pile of stubbies that were on the floor.Refshauge’s response will be ‘i think you need a hug’!

The guy at the end of the video was just asking the driver if he wanted fries or was he interested in the 2 for $1 special on chocolate frogs…

So dangerous, actually swiping a pump. This really could have been a catastrophe. Idiot.

No no, he’ll say he had a coughing fit. Hang on, that only works if you drive your kids into a dam on Father’s Day.

Fcuk me gently. How could that have happened? Even as pissed as he was, I simply can’t understand how he could have ended up driving at that speed all the way across a servo and into the shop. Makes no sense at all. It’s a miracle that nobody was killed. And it will be very interesting to see how this pans out in the courts.
