Another drunk driver tale
Was heading home this morning at about 4.30 from Frankston after some much needed loving, anyway got 8.7 economy on the freeway :)
I turned onto edithvale road and noticed a car stopping and going looking lost, upon overtaking I assumed someone was just looking for a driveway or something but my suspicions got higher when waiting for a red light to turn into nepean highway the car came up behind a bit too fast for my taste then took half a minute to get over the intersection. I was travelling about 40/kmh on nepean highway with him about a kay behind me and noticed swerving almost clipping parked cars etc, then lost him, only to reappear again as he sped past. This time I was in Mentone and was stopped by another red light, lucky I changed into another lane otherwise my EA would have been written off, heading towards Cheltenham I notified police after he almost hit a traffic light pole and almost swerved into another moving car, I was still on the phone to the cops when coming over the hill to highett road I noticed he went straight into the back of two stationary cars at a red light without braking at all, possible speed was close enough to 85, therefore writting off a VR commodore and consequently that car hit an EA falcon which only had minor damage, the Commodore was written off front and rear and the petrol tank split. Thankfully though the police were there only half a minute after I arrived after following him from before, he was obviously well over the b.a.c limit.
Something I haven't come across before driving home and I'm thankful it wasn't my car he wrote off but feel for the people who's car he did as they were going to adelaide for the long weekend.
Goes to show I guess it's not worth driving drunk
