Drink Driving A Picnic Table – Don’t Do It

At Walton Bridge Garage, we love a novelty vehicle or two and the world has thrown out some crazy adaptations from shoes to food, to swimming pools and much, much more.

With the Easter Bank Holiday imminent, many of us will be (weather permitting) heading for the nearest park to soak up some rays and have a picnic, or out with the top down enjoying some country roads.

But these guys in New Zealand have gone one better and combined the two by creating a motorised picnic table.
Unfortunately for Bryce Bovey, the 21-year-old behind the speeding bench on wheels, his invention wasn’t quite powerful enough for hills of Dunedin and cut out mid raz.

He was then pulled over by the police who breathalysed him and found he was 278mcg over the limit of 400mcg per litre of breath.

He argued that he had just been to the pub with friends and was only pushing the table home, but the crate of open beers on the table itself didn’t help his cause and he was fined $750 (about £418) and banned from driving for six months – picnic tables included.

Probably the priciest picnic he’s ever likely to have.

Whilst we love the imaginative nature of Bryce’s picnic cart, we don’t condone getting behind the wheel of any vehicle drunk regardless of its shape or form.
