I am sure this guy isn’t the first person to be charged with a DUI while operating a motorized wheelchair but he has set the bar pretty high for anyone that is going to come behind him.
The Queensland (Australia) police found a 64-year-old man passed out in his motorized wheelchair on a freeway off ramp. When the cops gave him a breathalyzer he blew a .301 which is about six times over the legal limit. The man was reportedly trying to visit a buddy that lived about 14km (8.69 miles) and he was making most of the trip on the four lane freeway.
So six times the legal limit, 64 years old, motorized wheelchair and on the goddamn freeway. All this guy needed was a “Ta-Da!” at the end to cap off one hell of a performance. I would need at least a .301 BAC before putting a motorized wheelchair on a major freeway.
