AN IPSWICH man ploughed into a primary school while more than four times the legal alcohol limit.
Joel Daniel Bliss saw three police vehicles and decided to do "something tricky" so went through a stop sign and crashed into Riverview Primary School's fence on Christmas Day last year.
Despite the car being extensively damaged from hitting the fence, Bliss continued to accelerate but the car wouldn't move.
Officers approached Bliss and when breath tested, the 21-year-old blew 0.211.
Before the crash one of the police cars had to swerve to avoid Bliss as he sped along the road at Riverview.
The fence was six feet and made of metal, and even though Bliss's car was wedged in it he continued to accelerate.
When officers asked why he ran the stop sign and crashed, he said "I tried to do something tricky because I saw you".
Bliss pleaded guilty at Ipswich Magistrates Court to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance.
He was fined $1200 and disqualified from driving for seven months. The court took into account the fact he was immediately suspended after the accident, seven months ago.
