A true story from Mount Isa in Queensland, Australia ...

Absolutely brilliant! Only an Aussie could pull this one off!

The Drunk Driver

Recently a routine Police patrol car parked outside a local neighbourhood pub late in the evening. The officer noticed a man (Luke Sandery) leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk.

The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles. The man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night). Then flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights.


He moved the vehicle forward a few metres, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last, after everyone had left, he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The Police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a random breathalyser test.

To his amazement the breathalyser indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication.

The Police officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station - this breathalyzer equipment must be broken."


"I doubt it," replied the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy"!

A great story, but it's been around as a joke for at least thirty years that I know of.


I havn't heard it either, but then I'm not around much longer than 30yrs.

Phil your'e showing your age now.
