eek Drink Driving Record...

This article was the front page lead story from "The Kimberly Echo" newspaper (I'm presuming it's either a Northern WA or NT paper) on Thursday, 15th July 2004.

Talk about unbelievable!

Re: Drink Driving Record...

You'd think they would have inpounded it a little before 12 charges.... Maybe after 5 or something you would get the idea that its not going to stop.
Can't belive how high all the readings were, pretty much all more than twice the limit.

Re: Drink Driving Record...



Two possibilities:

1. The drivers got drunk to blur the shame of driving the Magna.
2. Getting busted DUI is less shameful then geting busted DAM (Driving A Magna).

Re: Drink Driving Record...

The Kimberley Echo is the local newspaper for Kununurra in WA.
About 600kahs west of Katherine, and about 45 kahs from the NT/WA Border.

I used to live there and this sort of thing used to happen all the time.

Damn, so that means that the cops weren't only harrassing law breaking magna drivers, they were harrassing native australians,
all we need now is a P plate on the magna, and the cops were obviously targetting it for the Ps.......
