Woman asleep in boot of speeding car


A woman was found sleeping in the trunk of a four-wheel-drive vehicle after police stopped the driver who was allegedly doing 152 km / h in an area of ​​80 – one of several cases of "stupidity on the road".

Police said the driver – a 29-year-old Cambodian citizen – was captured Friday night in Tomerong, south of Nowra, New South Wales.

"While we were talking to the driver, a second woman was sleeping in the boot," a police spokesman said in a statement Saturday.

The Cambodian citizen has been fined for driving with a passenger in the trunk and exceeding the speed limit by more than 45 km / h.

She was banned from driving in NSW for six months.

Meanwhile, an 18-year-old P-plater was picked up on Saturday just after midnight driving a pickup truck in Tamworth with seven passengers on board.

Five of the passengers were not wearing seat belts "and two were traveling in the rear cargo area," NSW police said.

The driver and his passengers were fined.

Police in Tamworth were called shortly afterwards by accounts of a Commodore Holden being driven with a person "mounted on the roof."

The 37-year-old driver was subsequently submitted to a breath test and returned an alcohol reading of 0.081.

"Police have found several cases of what can only be described as stupidity on the roads," Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said in a statement.

"Unfortunately, some drivers are ignoring common sense and putting their own lives, the lives of their passengers and the lives of other uses of the road at great risk of death or injury."
