Some days it just isn't your day...
After spending Sunday afternoon at the Windsor Hotel drinking beers and enjoying the summer heat this guy decided it was time to leave so he jumped behind the wheel of his big beautiful Ferrari and headed home...
Stopping at the lights he copped some jeering from Windsor patrons sitting out the front so after flicking them the bird he dropped the clutch and lit up the rears. Suddenly the traction control kicked in and what do you know - the car understeered right into the nearest traffic light pole!
The cops rocked up a little while later [after an attempted runner] to interview and breath-test him. How much did he blow? 0.244! Way past the the 0.05 legal limit.
It gets better though...
The guy had only owned the car for just one month and to make matters worse because he was over the legal blood alcohol limit and charged with driving under the influence, insurance won't cover the costs!
Good way to ruin a weekend... and a Ferrari.

10 Pints of you favourite beer = $80
Your facial expression as you realise insurance isn't going payout for pissy driving as you power slide into a traffic light: PRICELESS!
