A Darwin man's wallet is AU$1,400 lighter after police collared him "engaged in a sexual romp with his female passenger" while under the influence, ABC News reports. Builder Bradley Dean Milne, 33, was last month spotted in his ute (pick-up truck) "veering onto the wrong side of a busy Darwin road". A concerned motorist …

    What is it with...

    ...the Aussies! They're obsessed with this sort of thing!

    the burning question

    is whether he is a Geek or not? Did he consider his partners needs?

    What a Bloody legend

    I think the fine was a bit steep , but I guess thats because it was the coppers missus riding shotgun!

    Paris because she has more style than to use a 4x4 for mischief.

    yeah, Gallic driving habits

    ... just like that scene towards the end of "Maitresse" where Depardieu crashes the car.

    I bet he pulled out without indicating.

    Paris, because ... well she has convictions for motoring offences, does she not?

    I know what you mean! I have an Aussie friend who admits to drink driving on occasion but he makes out like it's no big deal. I think I'm finally starting to get through to him that it's really not okay but this is a culture that never should have started.

    Ute = "pick-up truck"?

    Excuuuuuuuse me!

    No, not ever.

    If he'd crashed and killed himself whilst being that stupid they should've given him an award... what to call it though?

    Ah, he's from Darwin, so my suggestion would be a "Darwin Award".

    The heads-up

    Yes, so you said.

    oh *swerving* down the road

    I read it as swiving down the road - which is true, but not what was written.

    Did he have the rear view mirror properly adjusted so he could see what he was doing?

    "veering onto the wrong side"

    Is that a euphemism??

    "indulging in a coupling which "continued for several kilometres"."

    Lucky girl :) normally it only continues for six inches :)

    "He pleaded guilty to five charges, "including driving without a seatbelt""

    But he did have air bags :)

    I am sorry I will get my coat

    @Ute = "pick-up truck"?

    Ok, how about a tarted up non-functional pick-up truck?

    "embarrassed and ashamed". Yeah, I'll bet.

    A toyota hilux is also termed a ute and that's definitely a pick-up truck (as is a Navara and a Triton etc) so the translation stands. Holden utes are the strict preserve of tattooed fuck-knuckles.

    I mean, what kind of a prick buys a 6 litre lowered suspension work vehicle to drive to a building site? Proper tradies drive 4wd utes. Mind you, look at the company that makes them - Holden, a GM subsidiary. Keep the Govt cash coming eh?

    Regarding the story, he must be the first ute driver to not be a wanker.

    @winkypop & Aussie Drink Driving

    The SSV is a bit average. What you really want is a Maloo:

    But seriously, the attitude to drink driving in Australia (I moved from Berkshire to Queensland a few years ago) is shocking. In many circles, it's socially acceptable to drink and drive. If you don't get caught it's something to boast about to your mates.

    I tried finding some stats to back up my gut feel, but have run out of time. This is the most likely place to go:

    Either way, I'd love to know how to change society to see the danger in drink driving.

    Yes, that's a pick-up truck.

    Back to the article: did any part of the fine actually relate to the act that we are all interested in, or was it just for the alcohol and lack of seat-belt (sounds like he had a reasonable excuse - the girl on his lap would have stopped him from hitting the steering-wheel) and on that note, did she get in any trouble?

    You want more Aussie stories? check this one out-

    Also covered by the Reg-

    And followed up-

    He was driving a Holden Commodore SV6, while not a UTE, does tend to confirm Mark above assertion that "Holden utes are the strict preserve of tattooed fuck-knuckles".

    Ute != pick up truck

    Ute = utility vehicle.

    (I nearly wrote "pick up trick" which is maybe what he used to get the chick in the first place!)
