Drinking and driving is always a bad combination, but a Essex man has been convicted for drinking and driving in a odd way. The man was going about 4 miles per hour… while on a pink Barbie car!

They don’t look very big.

The 40 year old man apparently decided to use his youngsters car for the trip home. Unfortunately, he had too much to drink before climbing into the car for a child , registering at two times the legal limit!

The Telegraph reported:

He was given a mandatory three-year ban because he had received another drink-drive ban within the past ten years.

Magistrates also gave him a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay £85 court costs.

Chairman of the bench Neil Munson said: "This is most unusual.

"I have never seen the like of it in 15 years on the bench.

Driving while drunk is serious business. As I have written, drunk drivers can cause serious injuries to themselves and others.

Apparently, he is trying to get the car back.
