A Plate Of Rum Balls Caused Tram Delays In Melbourne On Christmas Day
A plate of rum balls caused delays across the Melbourne tram network on Christmas Day after tram drivers ate some that they couldn’t guarantee didn’t have alcohol in them at a function.
Tram drivers across the network must have a blood-alcohol content of 0.00 whilst driving, and eight staff were sent home in case they accidentally breached those guidelines.
As a result there were delays and cancellations across the network.
“As a precaution, Yarra Trams removed eight drivers from service on Christmas Day after they ate a dessert which may have contained alcohol,” a Yarra Trams spokesman told the Herald Sun.
