A drunk driver has been charged after he took his Toyota Corolla on an early morning drive along the light rail tracks near Central station in Sydney, police allege.
The 27-year-old was allegedly spotted by police driving his green hatchback along the tracks to the railway station where he dropped off two people before reversing back down the track towards Hay Street.
Police say they then saw the man drive erratically down Pitt Street, at which point they stopped him and subjected him to a breath test. He was charged with mid-range drink driving.
Acting Superintendent Denby Eardley said it was amazing no one was hurt in the incident.
"The narrow gauge tracks on the light rail only offer sufficient room for rail carriages, with no space or turning room for vehicles," she said.
