Dale Parker - 5 month Drink Driving Ban

Postby Aushiker » Thu Dec 23, 2010 9:44 pm

Hi

A
member of Australia’s gold-medal winning team pursuit squad has been banned from driving for five months after pleading guilty to drink driving. Dale Parker, aged 18, was also given a $1,100 fine and ordered to pay court costs and levies after crashing his car into a lamp post in November, leaving a pedestrian with head injuries.

Police also said the Parker, who had been driving under a probationary license, had been doing burnouts at the time of the crash which took place in the Adelaide Hills, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Earlier this month, Parker received a 16-month ban from racing, half of it suspended, from Sport SA after he pleaded guilty to bringing cycling into disrepute.

I think when you get your P's you should have to write a letter about how you PROMISE to obey the law and that you promise to not drink drive. I then think if you break the law annd do go back on your promises then you should have to stand in court and be given a suitable punishment, not a little punishment, but something like community service for 2 years (one day a week). Or have your car taken from you and your liscence.

Your letter should also say why you ARE responsible enough to drive a vehicle without a fully licenced driver present.

Drunk, hooning, crashes? Find book, throw.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
