Man Tries to Drive 310 Miles in Reverse

Man Tries to Drive 310 Miles in Reverse
By Associated Press

Fri Oct 6, 6:25 PM
SYDNEY, Australia - A 22-year-old man attempted to drive 310 miles in reverse on a remote Outback highway after his transmission failed, blocking his forward gears, police said Friday. The man was stopped by Western Australia state police on Thursday afternoon after they spotted his car roaring in reverse down the highway at about 40 mph, according to a statement.

He was en route to the state capital, Perth, when his transmission failed outside a restaurant in the Outback town of Kalgoorlie, about 300 miles away, according to media reports.

Rather than call a mechanic, the man opted to continue driving, in reverse.

Police said they stopped the man, whose identity was not immediately released, outside the nearby town of Coolgardie, about 12 miles from where his backward journey began.

A breath test for alcohol proved negative, but the man was charged with reckless driving and other traffic offenses, police said. He was ordered to appear before the Coolgardie Magistrates Court on Monday.

I mean it's illegal to drive drunk no matter if you are in the middle of the desert or on a crowded street.

It's not legal to drive like that so he got a ticket.

Because cops suck, well 90% of them do. It would be alright if they would just stay put at the donut shops.

Seems dumb to me. Forward/reverse, as long as he wasn't impeding traffic... Maybe in court he'll get off.

Coolgardie cops must have been really bored that day. Must have been no Road Trains going through that day to annoy.
