Mans straps his beer down in car, but not his child.

A car driver in Australia has been fined for strapping down his beer rather than his young child.

Police said they were "shocked and appalled" when they pulled over the car south of Alice Springs in Australia's Northern Territory.

They said the 30-can pack of beer was strapped down between two adults in the back, with the five-year-old child unrestrained on the floor.

    It's one of those stories where I don't know if I should laugh, or get all rightously indignant about.

    I know, I'll do both

    Last week when I was on holiday, a woman flew past me on a scooter at about 40mph with a 3-4 year old kid on her knee. She had a helmet, the kid didnt.
