WATCH: Drunk driver's dumb move

A DRUNK driver speeding through a school zone was caught reversing into another car, with the whole thing filmed by a police body camera.

Police in Brisbane were conducting traffic operations last Thursday when they saw a four-wheel drive going 76km/hr in a 40km/hr school zone.

When the police directed the 39-year-old male driver to pull over, he reversed his car and collided with another vehicle.

 

The driver was three times over the legal limit and allegedly blew a reading of 0.162.

He has been charged with driver under the influence and has received infringement notices for speeding and reversing when not safe.

He will appear in Brisbane Magistrate Court on August 22.

Neither the driver, nor the other motorist were injured in the collision, but both cars sustained minor damage.
