A man who drove a ride-on lawnmower into a service station for a refuelling has had his boozy jaunt cut short by Tasmanian police.

CCTV footage of the man driving the ride-on mower into a Lindisfarne service station was posted on the police Facebook page.

Just after midnight on Sunday, October 1, the unidentified man pulled up to a fuel bowser, with a second man accompanying him on foot close behind.

Police officers then pull alongside them in a van.

“Mate, we suggest getting a ride not a ride-on!” police wrote in their post.

“Organising a designated driver does not mean John Deere.”

Finally, they quipped:

“Old mate was already on the gas when he decided to ride his lawnmower to his local service station to fill up.”

Police said the man returned a blood-alcohol reading of 0.143 and has been charged with exceeding the prescribed alcohol limit and driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle.
