German loses licence for mowing lawn drunk

A German gardener has been fined and stripped of his licence for driving his lawnmower while drunk.

The court fined the 45-year-old man 400 euros and banned him from driving all vehicles, including his mower, for three months after police did a check on him as he was parking the vehicle, which has a maximum speed of 6 kilometres per hour.

Defence lawyer Stefan Deppe said his client would appeal.

"The mower does not pose the remotest danger to the public and common sense should have been applied," he said.

Police breath-tested the gardener after detecting the smell of alcohol as he finished mowing a lawn for a client.

"He said he'd had a bottle of wine," Deppe said.
