View Profile

Now this is something you don’t see every day!  A guy towing his boat to the boat ramp with his… mobility scooter.  The video, which was posted on Dash Cam Owners Australia website showed the man towing his boat to the Ballina Boat Ramp, holding his trailer in his hand.

The video was posted on Dash Cam Owners Australia’s Facebook page along with the comments

“We all have that one mate who goes fishing no matter what stands in their way.”

“I think he started to suspect something when we lapped him 3 times to get solid footage. Ingenuity at its finest”

The Australian sought insight from the police today who said the driver could potentially face a raft of fines including unregistered, which could result in a $637 fine, uninsured ($637), unregistered trailer ($637), tow vehicle with unsecured load ($425), tow trailer in unsafe manner ($425) as well as possible licence issues.

And there’s loads of entertaining comments on the Facebook item on their page!

  1. I can see my Donny doing this, nothing will ever stop him from fishing only trouble is it might get stuck in the sand at the boat ramp

  2. I just ‘liked’ Dash Cam Owners Australia.
    I will shortly post our dash cam video of a semi-trailer doing a u-turn at traffic lights.
    We were stopped opposite and he was in the right turn lane, but shocked us by doing the full u-turn in one swoop.
    I do commend him on his correct distance-measuring tho.
    I was thinking he would have to do a 3-point turn.
