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.
