Police searching for mates driving a motorized picnic table

Is this the most Australian crime of all time?

Western Australia Police are searching for a bunch of blokes who were spotted drink driving around Perth — on two motorized picnic tables.

Police have posted images of the men, dressed in T-shirts and thongs, on Facebook, with the appeal: “Police are concerned for the safety of those riding on the tables with no protective clothing, especially when on roads alongside motor vehicles.

“There are overall safety concerns particularly if a traffic incident was to occur, resulting in the persons subjecting themselves to potential injury.”

On top of that, there are the offences of, you know, driving a vehicle that isn’t exactly roadworthy or licensed and doing so while drinking.

The police appear to be facing an uphill battle in searching for the guys, with the majority of Facebook commenters more concerned about the possibility one of them spilled a drink.

This isn’t the first time that the people of Perth have taken their Aussie inventions to the street. In June last year a man was charged with drink driving after being caught on a motorized Esky he bought online.
