  • Photo Essay - Drunk Driver In Northbridge

    Shortly before 5am I was driving along Newcastle Street as I headed back into the war zone in my taxi. I came across a car parked very oddly on the side of the road.

    Turned out the guy was drunk... and missed the road. The driver was sitting in the front, on his phone to the RAC to get a tow truck. He was oblivious to the fact that he'd crashed. He didn't even mind that I was walking around taking photos.

    I quietly called the police, who arrived about 20 minutes later. I didn't manage to find out exactly what he blew, but I did overhear something about 0.15 and "almost four times the limit", so I'm gonna take a guess that he was in excess of 0.15 (ie driving under the influence) and blew a 0.18 or 0.19.

    He was loaded into the back of the police car and I left.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    See this annoys the crap out of me, back in 2004 my then pretty new car was parked along William st, a nice one way street, after a night out we walked back to my car only to find it, and two other cars had been pretty badly damaged by a vehicle driving the wrong way up William st. Which also managed to leave the scene without anyone calling it in (can only assume a drunk driver), my car has never been the same again.

    EDIT: Btw is that blood on the grill?

      Airbag went off! Heh.

      If that wasn't so sad/bad/pathetic/dangerous/etc, it'd be funny.

        Well Im sure laughing also way to perpetuate the stereotype

                    I am guessing that he will get some use out of them, so all is not lost.

                    I would make you wear a crown of thorns, and drag a cross up the street. Then, I would nail you to it and erect it on a hill with 2 common theives, before stabbing you in the side with a spear.

                    Hey, that would make a pretty good story. I might write a book.

                      Then you'd be a liar, you're not asian at all.

                        He does have nice shoes and I'm pretty sure he has mastered the parallel parking like a champion!

                          Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                          when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                            That's so bloody racist, but so bloody funny at the same time. I am truly torn, do I be a good moderatron, or show myself to be a hypocritical redneck...
