An Australian man is cited for driving what looks like a motorized cooler

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A man in Australia was cited for driving without a license. It's what he was driving that makes this interesting - a black metal cart with chrome running boards, a small engine in the back, handlebars and brakes. And the seat was a big blue ice chest - a motorized cooler. His ride has been impounded by the Swan Hill Police for 30 days, so he should get it back just in time for Christmas. It's MORNING EDITION.
