Police on the hunt for ‘motorised picnic table’ drivers

It may have turned into a viral hit on social media, however Western Australia police are less than amused with the men spotted driving motorised picnic tables through busy Perth streets.

Photos and video footage of the men, driving along Scarborough Beach Road towards the West Coast Highway intersection appeared on Facebook yesterday and have since received thousands of shares with many commenting ‘that’s straya for ya’.

However police are keen to track down those involved,  stating that they are concerned for their safety.


“Police are concerned for the safety of those riding on the tables with no protective clothing, especially when on roads alongside motor vehicles.

“There are overall safety concerns particularly if a traffic incident was to occur, resulting in the persons subjecting themselves to potential injury.”

“The people using these vehicles could face a number of charges including driving an unlicensed vehicle, driving an unroadworthy vehicle and drink driving.”

CCTV footage is being used to try and identify those involved in the stunt.
