A rather silly breeder has been caught driving his ute through Rundle Mall, Adelaide SA with his two little kids in tow.
Earlier, the drongo dad had been involved in a minor collision, where he fled the scene without exchanging his deets. Minutes later, drongo dad was driving through Rundle Mall. For those of you that don’t know, Rundle Mall is like a street mall with shops down either side. You’re not supposed to drive through it, even though it looks like a street. The mall was in full swing with Sunday shoppers, and they fled out of the drongo dad’s path.
Drongo dad was arrested in a nearby street and charged with driving without due care, driving in a dangerous manner, acts to endanger life, and failing to exchange details at the scene of an accident. His ute has been impounded for 28 days and he’ll appear in court on a later date. I don’t know what became of the children, but I hope their mother has more sense than their drongo dad.
How much do you want to bet that alcohol and/or drugs were involved?
**Aussie Sabbath’s native natterings** A mall in Australia is not like a mall in the US. The term “Mall” applies to a street mall like Rundle Mall, where it’s a street lined with shops. These are usually closed to vehicles, hence why drongo dad wasn’t allowed to drive there. We call the US “mall” a shopping centre or a complex. We have big ones here, some like Erina Fair, Shellharbour Square, Charlestown Square and quite a few in Sydney are absolutely huge. There is a “mall” near where I live, that wasn’t too long ago opened to vehicular traffic. I drove through there on Christmas Eve, which felt really weird because the last time I’d been there, cars weren’t supposed to drive through it.
**Extra nattering** A “ute” is short for “utility vehicle” i.e. a truck with a flat bed bit on the back. A “drongo” is a stupid person, it’s like calling someone a moron. It can be used as a noun or an adjective.
