P-Plater Fined For Driving With A Friend In The Boot
An 18-year-old P-plate driver has been charged after breaking four laws at once when he was pulled over early Sunday morning.
The man was pulled over in Sydney after he was clocked by police doing 105km/hr in an 80km/hr zone.
But when the highway patrol pulled the young driver over, they realised he was illegally carrying a full carload of youths - including one boy hiding in the boot.
All six passengers in the car were 18-years-old, which breaches the passenger restriction on his licence.
The young man also tested positive to having alcohol in his system, with a final reading was 0.079.
Police issued the man a string of fines.
The first was for exceeding the speed limit by up to 20km/h, resulting in a $472 fine and four demerit points.
He was then fined $263 and two demerits for failing to display his P plates, driving with more than one passanger under 21 years between 11pm and 5am, resulting in another $561 fine and three demerits, and driving with a passenger in the boot, rounding out his fines with another $337 and three demerit points.
The passenger in the boot also copped an infringement notice of $337.
The accused was charged and will face the Downing Centre Local court in October.
