Man cited for driving a motorized cooler without a license

Who knew you needed a license for this. A man in Australia was cited for driving without a license—on a motorized cooler. The Swan Hill Police Service said officers stopped the 25-year-old man, who was spotted on the motorized cooler on a sidewalk in Kerang, Victoria. A photo posted to Facebook by police shows the cooler on a metal platform with four wheels, an engine, and handlebars arranged to indicate the cooler serves as the small vehicle’s seat.

Police also shared a photo of the motorized cooler loaded onto the back of a large tow truck. Offices noted the cooler was impounded for 30 days, and the man was cited for driving without a license. In a Facebook post, they note the cooler “is considered a vehicle due to the size/engine capacity and must comply with legislative requirements and road rules.”
