While there’s never a good reason for driving drunk, some are clearly stranger than others. For example, as reported by The Courier Mail:
The 55-year-old [woman] from St Kilda East was caught outside the Prahran Police Station on Friday night and recorded a reading of 0.052.
It was her second offence in 10 years and she received an automatic loss of license.
So why did she do it?
Police say the woman said she had decided to drive because she wanted to try out her new false teeth on KFC.
And if you like that one, you’ll like this one, also reported by The Courier Mail:
A New Zealand schoolteacher who crashed her car while brushing her teeth has landed herself in court.
Police officer Graham Single told the Blenheim district court, 272km north of Christchurch, that Cherie Margaret Davis, 65, set the cruise control of her car to 100km/h, “got out her toothbrush and started brushing her teeth”.
Right, like you’ve never done it…
Ms Davis subsequently lost concentration and crashed into a rock bank by the side of the road, the Marlborough Express reported today.
According to police, Ms Davis had a blood alcohol level almost twice the legal limit at the time of the March 19 crash.
Ms Davis admitted two charges of drunk driving, two of careless use and one of driving while prohibited.
