Barbie Car DUI

Quote:
NY Times: Man Convicted for Driving Drunk in Barbie Car
By STEPHEN WILLIAMS

A 40-year-old man was pulled over by the police as he drove a modified electric Barbie car — maximum speed, 4 miles an hour — on a street near his home in Clacton-on-Sea, England.

Paul Hutton, a former Royal Air Force aeronautical engineer who is studying electrical engineering, later admitted in court that he had been drinking. “I was very surprised to get done for drink-driving, but I was a twit to say the least,” he said.

He had added larger wheels to the toy car, which is designed for toddlers to scoot around the living room. “I’m in the third year of my electrical engineering course, and it was a little project I was doing with my son, who is doing a car mechanics course,” he said. “When it was done, I couldn’t resist the temptation to take it out.”


The Sun reports that Mr. Hutton said he was driving it to a friend’s house when he was pulled over. The police administered a breathalyzer test, which showed him to be over the legal limit.

“I’m not unhappy with my punishment, just a little bit surprised,” he said.

Because Mr. Hutton had been previously cited for drunken driving within the past 10 years, his license was revoked for three years, and he was ordered to pay $130 in court fees.

“This is most unusual,” said Magistrate Neil Munson. “I have never seen the like of it in 15 years on the bench.”

While it was not clear exactly which model Mr. Hutton was driving, Fisher Price builds a Barbie Jeep that runs off a rechargeable 12-volt battery and retails for $250.

“The vehicle is not even capable of doing the speed of a mobility scooter,” said Mr. Munson, “and could be outrun by a pedestrian.”

I wonder if he had any illegal mods on the $250 toy barbie car that was he driving.

I doubt the toy car was even insured... the cop might as well laid down another charge there.

I still think this one is better:

Quote:
Kile Wygle (awesome name), 28, recently received a DUI after crashing his homemade bar-stool kart (pictured) and calling 911.

Kile crashed his bar stool near his Newark home earlier this month and called 911 due to his injuries. When an officer arrived and asked Wygle what happened, he answered, "I wrecked my bar stool." According to a Newark Police Division report, a copy of which you'll find here, Wygle's homemade ride is powered by a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine. Wygle noted that the bar stool could hit nearly 40 miles per hour, but that he was only going 20 when he wiped out late in the afternoon on March 4 (a witness told police that he spotted someone driving a "strange motorized machine" before the crash). A plastered Wygle, who failed a series of field sobriety tests, was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license, both misdemeanors. His bar stool was not impounded.

Something doesn't seem quite right to me there...

Does the law specify WHAT has to be driven in order to get a DUI?

This is how it should be done everywhere.

Obviously you never owned a power wheels lol. Naw you can sit on/in those little bastards but by the sounds of it, it was modified to fit adults. His kid was in mechanics and he was electrical so it probably was made to fit an adult.

Berz out.
