Beware of drunk drivers...on wheelchairs

A disabled German man was penalized for speeding in his electric wheelchair while drunk. I am not exactly how fast an electric wheelchair can go, but I suppose driving anything while drunk can be a danger.

This was the fourth offense for the poor man, who claims he drinks 10 to 12 beers a day (I suppose it is extreme, but I've seen worse). The judge fined him one thousand euros and banned him from using his electric wheelchair for three months. He'll have to learn how to get speedy with a regular wheelchair, for now.
