An Australian man had his driving license suspended for 10 months and was fined after he was caught driving a scooter made of a motorized beer cooler capable of carrying several dozen drinks -- after knocking back a few.The important lesson to take away from this is that Australia actually has a legal blood alcohol limit. And police, for that matter.
The unconventional scooter featured a cooler box mounted on a wheeled frame and powered by a 50 cc engine, complete with a steering handlebar. The cooler doubled as a driver's seat and was able to hold up to 48 bottles of beer.
"By the time we built it, it was quite late so we thought we'd go for a bit of a test run," he told Network Ten.
He was caught by the police en route and found to be more than three times over Australia's legal blood alcohol limit, and was charged with drink driving and driving without a license.
(Also, that was a gasoline joke.)
