SYDNEY, Australia - Police charged an Australian driver with "reversing further than necessary" after he traveled backward for more than 40 kilometers (25 miles) along one of the country's busiest highways.

Police said the man was stopped on the Hume Highway — which runs between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne — at Benalla, about 200 kilometers northeast of Melbourne.

Police said the man told them reverse was the only gear in the car that worked and that he was traveling home to the small regional town of Numurkah, 90 kilometers (56 miles) farther on his way.

He was also charged with unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered car and is to appear in court later this year.
