Icon24 Queensland woman charged with riding horse to bottle shop while four times over legal

It's not just cars you can be drunk-in-charge of...

A woman has been charged after allegedly riding a horse to a bottle shop while she was more than four times the legal alcohol limit.

Police in Logan, south of Brisbane, were called to a tavern about 11:30pm on Monday over a woman refusing to leave the premises.

They said upon arrival the female allegedly rode the horse through the drive-through section of the tavern and appeared heavily intoxicated.

I'm getting hung up on the fact that drive-through taverns are apparently a thing in Australia.

It first says "bottle shop" so the drive through part could be for sealed bottles, not open containers.

Where I grew up there was a chain of liquor stores that sometimes had a drive through window. Some of them also had a "lounge" portion of the premises where alcohol was served. It had a separate entrance, but was part of the same building. Rightly or wrongly, that's what I'm picturing here.

Either way, such a store having a drive-through window weirds me out.

Not the only time drive through windows sell things you shouldn't use until you get home. There are drive through dry cleaners and you shouldn't change clothes while you are driving. Drive through wedding chapels and you shouldn't connube while you are driving.

I always think it's a bit odd that people are weirded out by it. We regularly use a drive through pharmacy near us, and it isn't because we intend to use the medication in the car.

Even when I go through a drive through restaurant, most of the time I don't intend to eat the food in my car. I intend to eat it when I arrive at my destination. I certainly don't intend to eat it while I'm driving (although I guess that is a thing some people do).

Actually at In-N-Out they ask you if you plan on eating in your car. If you say no they give you your food in a bag. If you say yes they give it to you on a cardboard tray.

I'm weirded out by drive-through anything. The usual takeaway places have drive-through branches here now too, and those are weird. It's nothing to do with assuming you're going to be eating or drinking while driving - surely most people using drive-through even to buy a burger will park so that they can eat it?
