Coolbox 'car' driver loses licence

An Australian man has been convicted of drink-driving after turning a coolbox into a 'car' and taking it for a test drive.

Christopher Petrie, 23, bought the parts to transform the cooler on the internet, and assembled it with a friend before taking it for a spin.

He was stopped by police in Noosa, Queensland, and subsequently lost his driving licence for nine months.
