Guy Loses His License After Towing His Wheelchair-Bound Friend With His Car
August 15th, 2017
20-year-old Michael Ward has been banned from driving for almost two years after he was caught on camera towing his wheelchair-bound friend behind his car through the streets on a midnight run from a bar to a nearby McDonald's, according to The Drive.
In footage released by North Yorkshire Police, Ward is seen driving off in his Hyundai Tiburon while his friend William MacPherson held onto the rear spoiler. The streets wet and MacPherson loses his grip several times, go figure. After several sharp turns, the two finally make it to their destination for some hard-earned Big Macs. After all was said and done they traveled about two-tenths of a mile. And to no surprise, the authorities weren’t too thrilled with the whole thing. Ward pled guilty to dangerous driving and was also ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and pay a fine of $221 in addition to losing his license. MacPherson didn’t get off easy either and pled guilty to "holding onto a vehicle for the purpose of being drawn" and was fined a total of $270. Hopefully, they have other friends that like to hand out rides just as much as they do because they’ll need them the next few years…
This week on PowerNation RockAuto.com co-founder Tom Taylor is back to talk about this year’s epic Xtreme Off Road adventure: Bourbon & Boulders. Tom and a group of aftermarket company enthusiasts will once again mount up and follow Ian this time through Kentucky as they hit some cool trails and check out a few Bluegrass State distilleries. This time Ian is taking a 1968 Jeepster Commando and transforming it into a vintage every day rock crawler that you’ll see in upcoming Xtreme episodes. And then the big payoff happens in November. And when it’s all said and done you can enter for chance to win the Jeepster by signing up starting August 23rd.
