Mov­ing vi­o­la­tion

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

A 29-YEAR-OLD man copped a $100 penalty for be­ing in charge of a mo­torised pic­nic ta­ble on a Swan Val­ley wine tour last week­end.

Of­fi­cers stopped the man on West Swan Road about 5.10pm last Satur­day.

Po­lice im­pounded the ‘ve­hi­cle’ and the man re­ceived an in­fringe­ment for per­mit­ting a ‘ve­hi­cle to be driven when un­safe’.

Ugly Duck­ling Wines posted a video of the ta­ble be­ing driven by four peo­ple in West Swan.

Soon af­ter the video was taken, the ta­ble was loaded on to the back of a tow truck.

Mo­torised pic­nic ta­bles first made the news in Perth three years ago when one was spot­ted be­ing driven in Scarborough.

Then Po­lice Min­is­ter Liza Har­vey called them “bizarre”.
