While posting this I just witnessed a black Volvo driven by an elderly man in a hat drive the wrong way up National Circuit…
Just stolen from the ABC website:
Unlicensed 15yo caught drink-driving
A 15-year-old boy has been charged with drink-driving after a police pursuit in northern Canberra this morning.
Police attempted to stop the teenager’s car on Cotter Road but he failed to stop and they followed him through the suburb of Higgins.
Police say the chase lasted for five minutes with speeds reaching up to 150 kph in a 90 kph zone.
The driver was arrested and breath-tested, allegedly recording an blood alcohol reading of 0.042, more than twice the legal limit.
Police say the boy was also unlicensed and the car was unregistered.
He is expected to appear in the ACT Children’s Court today.
Given our numerous “car with idiot driving” posts of late, here we have another candidate for natural selection. Who’s to be he gets a nice stern talking to by the kiddie court and will continue to reoffend until he kills someone.
