Sydney - A 13-year-old boy has been charged with drink driving after police pulled him over for his erratic behaviour on the road, authorities said on Sunday.

New South Wales police said they spotted a car driving strangely late on Saturday at a holiday park near the north coast town of Kempsey.

"Police stopped the car and found the driver to be a young boy, who had a 30-year-old front seat passenger," police said in a statement.

The boy was tested and found to have a positive reading for alcohol and has been charged with a number of offences including drink-driving and driving while unlicensed.

His passenger was also charged with aiding and abetting a drink driver and with permitting an unlicensed driver, police said.

      Despite this I am amazed at how well laws and by-laws are enfored in Australia. For them this is a very unusual incident and is therefore rather newsworthy.

    Lol, reminds me of the story of the Aus dude who was pulled over and had his beers fastened securely in the front seat and his kid running around in the back seat unstrapped.

    If this was an Irish boy, I wouldn't be suprised. Even if he was 5 years old.
