    OUCH!

    https://www.facebook.com/TrafficServ...O7Ej77N4pMnTr4

    About 5:35pm on Saturday 14th of September, 2019, a 41-yr old man from Greystanes was driving his Toyota Hilux on the M1 Motorway, Cowan, towing a boat. He lost control and collided briefly with an unknown B-double heavy vehicle, before jack-knifing and colliding with the rock wall. The 2500kg vessel came free from the trailer and slid 50m before coming to rest. Police from Kuring Gai Highway Patrol were called and attended, and the driver was arrested after providing a positive breath sample for alcohol. Lane 1 of the motorway was shut for 90mins to enable salvage. The driver was subsequently charged with high range drink driving after returning a blood alcohol reading of 0.190

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Thankfully he didn't take anyone with him. Absolute muppet.

    F*#k me! Seriously why would you drink drive towing your pride possession? I love a beer like most blokes, but in 30 years of boating Iíve not had a drink either on the boat or vehicle. My alcohol consumption starts when the boat is unhitched whilst wash down. Itís one of my favourite pastimes but would never do it on the water.

    Completely agree!

    I was out on Saturday and I even remember thinking to myself on the water "why risk all of this for grog?" I know people do, but fair dinkum if all you want to do is get hammered, then save yourself the effort of putting a boat on the water and either go to a pub or stay home. Innocent people could have been injured or worse because of that clown.
