A Victorian man has been fined for driving more than 30 km to buy butter chicken of a specific type.
The guy, who drove for Indian food from Werribee to Melbourne’s CBD, was one of 74 individuals fined for violating public health orders in Victoria in the last 24 hours.
The fine for breaching orders for public health is $1652 per offense.
Several individuals meeting in public and private areas to catch up with friends and drink alcohol were given more infringements.
Victorian police estimate that out of 13,486 vehicle checks, 10 infringements have been given to drivers who did not follow instructions.
Under the limits, Victorians are permitted to leave their homes only for four reasons: shopping for items such as food, delivering or receiving medication, working or learning and exercising.
Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said Victorian Police “don’t muck” about it, but that most people abide by the law.
