An Adelaide man has lost his license following a wild drunk driving offence overnight. The driver was caught driving nearly six times over the legal limit while towing a trailer that was on fire and turned on its side.
The 32-year-old man blew a whopping 0.294 blood alcohol reading, the ABC reports.

According to SA Health, a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.15-0.30g% can put you at risk of implications including “inadequate breathing, unable to walk without assistance, loss of bladder control and possibly loss of consciousness.” I’m no doctor, but if you can’t walk without assistance or breathe properly, you’re definitely too drunk to be driving.
Police report that the man was allegedly towing the trailer for approximately 2km before he was stopped by police and fire crews at 4am on Sunday morning.
Thankfully, the man was not injured, despite extensive damage to the car and trailer, which was carrying a container of diesel fuel.
The 32-year-old man from Parafield Gardens had his license immediately revoked for at least 12 months. He will face court at a later date for his DUI charges.
Don’t drink and drive. It’s never a good idea.
