Otago, New Zealand. Motto: We're not Florida, but we're doing our best

Woman caught drunk in charge of a motorised picnic cooler. Escapes conviction because judge is smart enough to recognise an "offence in name only" when he sees one.
This appears to be a thing in this part of the country: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/cool-ride-cromwell-man-fined-for-drink-driving-on-motorised-chilly-bin/YRLJK2PB67T6VPSFE4IDPN5XXE.
Otago basically divides into "rich and touristy bits around Queenstown" and "miles and miles of low-income farming country": guess which part Alexandra and Cromwell are in. Apart from automating and mobilising "hold my beer", there's not much else to do in rural parts except woo sheep and shoot road signs

I kind of get it, while not NZ, I grew up in the rural midwest US in a farming town. There was little to do but get drunk and go cow tipping, all the other good ideas got dangerous or expensive fast.

I've seen battery powered coolers, but this is the first gas powered one I've seen.

@distraxi our roads are primarily unpaved and too rough for such a sleek cooler as that, though there's a monster truck style one I've seen at the local Event Barn (which occasionally hosts monster truck events, but mostly does weddings)... Nice to see that shooting roadsigns is an international rural boredom/intoxication sport, even in the southern hemisphere. the above sign (which I'm sure I took a picture of sometime) is from the state capitol of Montpelier. It, and it's twins, are famously made from extra-heavy material to withstand all the buckshot slung at them.
