Dad blamed his lead foot on the kids.

The WA man has lost his licence after allegedly driving at nearly 100 kilometres an hour through a work zone, because he was suffering a bout of gastro he had caught off the kids.

The man’s unusual excuse was recorded by Dalwallinu police on Monday morning.

His excuse?

“I needed to s–t, kids have given me gastro.”

Poor dad! It is never a nice feeling, but understandably not a good excuse to speed.

Have any of our MoM’s experienced any embarrassing sickness stories thanks to the kids?

  • Some people really do come up with some good ones.


  • Really…. poor kids… dont know what else they are blamed for…. :O


  • I think that is so funny, weather it’s true or not.


  • Yeah… not sure if this is just made up or one of those … the kids did it stories to get someone out of trouble.


  • Any excuse for a port in the storm? Bet the cops hadn’t heard that one before.


  • I wonder whether his story was true or just an excuse he’s used before?


  • yeah yeah….pull the other one…… i bet the cop would have thought that. i bet that they hear all the excuses and could write books on the topic


  • I am wondering where he was speeding too, the loo maybe??
    He was in a Kenworth Truck so he must have been …dare I say on the job.
    Seriously though, this is NO excuse to speed, he could have caused an accident.


  • Lol, I can imagine he was speeding a little to catch the toilet ;)


  • Sorry there is no excuse at all!


  • It does have the ring of truth, though!

    • LOL! Love your funny comment – very quick!


  • Ha! Ha! Yes, I read it on the newspaper this morning. Surely original!! ;-)


  • He should’ve stayed home!


  • Wouldn’t a work zone have some kind of portaloo arrangement for the workers? Should have stopped and ducked in there.


  • I really have no words and I bet the police were speechless too!
