Aussie Avoids Alcohol Abuse - Oi!

An Australian man has been fined over $350 for strapping his crate of beer into a seatbelt and sitting his child in the floor!

When pulled over, the constable was "appalled" to find the vehicle contained four adults, all buckled-in properly. Between them set a crate of beers (30 in all), also buckled-up. On the hump in the middle was a toddler!

While this semi-humorous episode has made news around the globe, shocking and upsetting most, I have to admit I see where this guy was coming from - after all, the kid most likely has some kind of medical coverage; had something occurred, the beer would have been lost!

Besides, there are too many people anyway. And never enough beer. Oi!
