Chivalry’s dead

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

ONE man’s at­tempt at chivalry has landed him with a dis­qual­i­fied driver’s li­cence and a fine af­ter mov­ing a parked ve­hi­cle to the front of a li­censed premise on be­half of the fe­male des­ig­nated driver.

Se­bas­tian Temesi, 21, was out with four women in Port Dou­glas in the early hours of Au­gust 5 and with in­tox­i­cated peo­ple on the road he did not want to place the des­ig­nated driver at risk.

While in the process of turn­ing the ve­hi­cle so the des­ig­nated driver could take the wheel safely, the Cooya Beach res­i­dent was in­ter­cepted by Port Dou­glas po­lice on Wharf St and reg­is­tered a read­ing of .127.

De­spite be­ing re­morse­ful for his ac­tions and apolo­getic, Mag­is­trate Braes handed down an $800 fine and dis­qual­i­fied his li­cence for three months.
