Coachman with mobile phone
The driver's guilt was that he was talking on his mobile phone!
Did you still know that in Australia, as in some other civilized countries, is it strictly forbidden to use a mobile phone while driving? So you can be fined a tidy sum. But not so long ago, it was for such a violation that the driver got a fine, that he drove a group of tourists in a cart, harnessed by horses.
An elegant carriage, made in the style of the century before last, harnessed by a pair of bay trees, slowly followed the streets of Melbourne, not exceeding the speed of four kilometers per hour. The coachman had to call, holding the reins with one hand, in the other he took a mobile phone, and at that moment he was noticed by policemen passing by in his car. Since the horse cart is officially considered a vehicle, the driver quickly stopped, made a quick test for the presence of alcoholic intoxication, and only then the Melbourne Magistrates Court fined the unlucky coachman for 135 Australian dollars.
The driver firmly decided to appeal against the decision of the court. He has been traveling tourists in horse-drawn carriages for about twenty years, and the annoying intuition that occurred in front of his clients, as he himself fears, will not improve his reputation.
