EARLIER:

Perth police have impounded a motorised picnic table being taken on a wine tour this weekend.

Ugly Duckling Wines posted a video of the table being driven by four people in the Swan Valley.

Soon after the video was taken the table was being loaded onto the back of a tow truck.

Motorised picnic tables first made the news in Perth three years ago when one was spotted being driven in Scarborough.

Then Police Minister Liza Harvey dubbed motorised picnic tables as “bizarre” and “dangerous”.

People using motorised picnic tables could face a number of charges including driving an unlicensed vehicle, driving an unroadworthy vehicle and drink driving.
