    Drunk Motorised Beer Cooler Driver Banned

    You can't make up stuff like this.

    An Australian man has been banned from driving for 10 months after being caught on a scooter made of a motorised beer cooler.
    The revamped 50cc scooter features a cooler box, which doubles up as a driver's seat and is able to hold up to 48 bottles of beer.
    Chris Petrie, 23, bought the scooter on the internet for $630 (404).
    He apparently decided to sample a few beers while assembling it before driving it home, according to a local television station

    I have to say there have been times when something like that would have been good to have at say a football game or a concert.

    I have an old scooter I could easily convert, but it's 150cc and as such counts as a motorcycle and not a drunk cart.
