That good ol' Aussie ingenuity!

Those of you "down under"...how common is this???[:D][:D]


Gives new meaning to "going back home"
Mon Mar 13



Police charged an Australian driver with "reversing further than necessary" after he traveled backwards for more than 25 miles along one of the country's busiest highways.

Police said the man was stopped on the Hume Highway -- which runs between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne.

Police said the man told them reverse was the only gear in the car that worked and that he was traveling home to the small regional town of Numurkah, another 56 miles away.

He was also charged with unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered car. He will appear in court later this year.

Can you imagine the whine from the engine? One noisy trip and one sore neck. I hope he wasm't doing it with mirrors.
